Sony Interactive Entertainment is also this year’s most-nominated publisher with 22 nominations across its wide portfolio of titles. The achievement has only been beaten by Nintendo, which received 23 nominations in 2017 – the same year games such as The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild and Super Mario Odyssey were released.
Nominations are now open for The Game Awards for gaming fans to cast their vote. Fans can visit here to begin voting for their favourite games.
