The Game Awards 2021: Deathloop Takes Home the Most Nominations - Get2Gaming


The nominations for this year were announced yesterday and include multiple games receiving multiple nominations

It’s already November so it’s that time again where awards are being handed out left, right, and centre for all games that have blown us away this year.

The Game Awards 2021 has now released its nominations for each category and will be streamed live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on December 9 with world premieres and musical performances set to be featured.

Plenty of outstanding games have been nominated, but certain games like Deathloop and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart have received nominations in multiple categories.

Game Awards 2021 Nominations

30 awards are up for grabs and the winner for each category will be decided by a blended vote between the jury and the public, with the jury making up 90% and the public making up the final 10%, making it more fair for games that are only on one single platform.

The Last of Us: Part 2 took home 10 awards last year, including Game of the Year, will Deathloop be doing the same? Here is the full list of nominations for this year:
