2020 Gamescom Awards

Gamescom, the world’s largest event for computer and video games, announced the winners of the 2020 Gamescom Awards in two virtual ceremonies over the weekend.

This year the Best Of Gamescom Award went to Cyberpunk 2077, an RPG developed by Polish studio CD Project Red. The game also impressed the jury in the categories of Best Sony PlayStation Game, Best PC Game and Best Role-Playing Game. Fans, in consumer voting, also chose the game as “the most hotly anticipated” of all the games nominated for the award.

This year’s special jury prize, the Heart Of Gaming Award, went to the all-digital Indie Arena Booth, a virtual walk-through MMO designed by Super Crowd Entertainment within a few months.
