The winners of BAFTA awards have been announced. Most statuettes went to Returnal, which was recognized as game of the year.


The winners of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ gaming awards for 2021 have been announced.

The biggest winner was the shooter Returnal, which won in three categories, including the most important one – for the Best Game of the Year.

Two statuettes each went to The Artful Escape (Greatest Artistic Achievement and Greatest Sound Achievement), Unpacking (Best Story and EE Special Award), Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (Best In-Game Animation and Greatest Technological Achievement), and It Takes Two (Best Multiplayer Game and Best New Brand). In addition, encryption was recognized as best design .

It is worth adding that Steam hosted a sale on many games that have received a BAFTA award this year, or were nominated on the list of titles.
