20 companies take home prizes from this year’s awards ceremony
Games development stars from around the UK and Europe descended upon Brighton tonight to honour the winners of this year’s Develop Industry Excellence Awards.
More than 175 companies attended the event – the biggest attendance yet for these awards. The expanded array of 25 prizes went to 20 different companies, with Rockstar North the big winners of the night.
The Grand Theft Auto developer took home the special Studio of the Year prize – one of five new categories – as well as Visual Arts and In-House Studio. There was an extra gong for the seminal GTA V, with Faceware Technologies bagging the award for Creative Contribution: Visuals thanks to its work on Rockstar’s epic.
