God of War Wins 2019 Writers Guild Award

By Rebecca Smith, 8 months ago
The 2019 Writers Guild Awards took place over the weekend, and while you would expect most of the fanfare to go to films, TV shows, and books, of course, there are other forms of entertainment media honoured at the event. One of those is video games, and with PlayStation exclusive title Horizon: Zero Dawn managing to scoop the award in 2018, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End winning in 2017, all eyes were on Sony to see if they could make it three years in a row. Spoiler: they did.

The team at Sony Interactive Entertainment managed to scoop the 2019 award for Outstanding Achievement in Videogame Writing in God of War. The game beat off competition from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Batman: The Enemy Within, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire to win the top prize. Those specifically named in the nomination were writers Matt Sophos, Richard Zangrande Gaubert, and Cory Barlog, and Narrative Designers Orion Walker and Adam Dolin. You can see the team's acceptance speech below:


With big exclusives in the works, although admittedly few confirmed for a 2019 release at the time of writing, will it be four years in a row for PlayStation in 2020?
