On the official GDC website, we get a description as to what we can expect from the awards. “This year sees Arkane Studios' Deathloop leading with six nominations, closely followed by Hazelight Studios' It Takes Two (five nominations) and Playground Games' Forza Horizon 15 (four nominations). All three of these titles were nominated for the prestigious Game of the Year award—alongside Capcom's Resident Evil Village and Daniel Mullins Games' Inscryption.” The GDCA will be hosted by game designer Osama Dorias.
