Gears 5 wins Xbox Game of the Year 2019

This past Friday we headed to the 37th annual The Golden Joystick Awards 2019 with our fingers and toes crossed; Gears 5 was up for Xbox Game of the Year.

For those who don’t know, The Golden Joystick Awards are special because they’re mainly voted for by you, the public! Over 3.5 million votes were cast this year across 19 categories.

We waited with bated breath as brilliant developers went up to collect their awards before Gears 5 was announced as Xbox Game of the Year!

Gears 5 won!

It’s incredibly humbling for all of us at Splash Damage that the fans have taken so strongly to Gears 5, and supported us in our work across Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Gears of War 4, Gears 5 and are excited for the upcoming Gears: Tactics.
