Here’s all the winners from The Game Awards 2021

It Takes Two Game Awards 2021

A full rundown of everyone who took home a trophy tonight

The Game Awards 2021 has announced its winners and the show has come to an end. Accolades were given, musical performances rocked the house, and even though I’m pre-writing this section, I’ll just assume a Muppet showed up somewhere. (Note: No Muppets, but there was one pot friend.)

It Takes Two took home the big award, but games like Deathloop and Forza Horizon 5 made off with a fair number of trophies too. Kena: Bridge of Spirits, meanwhile, took both indie categories at The Game Awards 2021, making it a pretty strong debut for Ember Lab. The Matrix got a new interactive experience, plus a bunch of other trailers and reveals were shown.
