The Game Developers Conference has today revealed the nominees for its 22nd awards ceremony, which are selected and voted on by the creators themselves. Set to take place in late March both virtually and in person, a wide array of categories encompass titles big and small.

Deathloop leads the way with six nominations including Game of the Year, and It Takes Two is just behind it with five — also including the Game of the Year award. The other three games in the running for the top prize are Inscryption, Resident Evil Village, and Forza Horizon 5. As far as Sony representation goes, Returnal is nominated in the Best Audio and Best Technology categories while Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is also up for the latter as well as Best Visual Art.
