Cyberpunk 2077 Nominated for Six Gamescom Awards 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 Nominated for Six Gamescom Awards 2020

Usually, around this time of the year the industry is enjoying Gamescom but this year everything has moved online. Despite the change this year, the Gamescom Awards 2020 must go on and Cyberpunk 2077 is up for six of them.

The winners in some of the categories will be announced on Thursday 27 August during the Opening Night Live event from 8PM EU time (11AM PST/1PM EST). Cyberpunk 2077 is nominated in the Best Action Game, Best Microsoft Xbox Game, Best Sony Playstation Game, Best Role-Playing Game, and Most Original Game categories.

Whether CD Projekt manages to scoop the lot remains to be seen but I would be surprised if they don’t manage to grab three or four of these gongs. It could also snag the Most Wanted award. We’ll have to wait until later in the week to find out.

Check out the list below to see what Cyberpunk 2077 is up against and there’s a video embed below so you can watch it on Thursday. Good luck CDPR!
