Epic Games to collect special BAFTA award

4:30 pm, May 14, 2019
BAFTA doesn't hand out special awards for games all that often - just a handful of people have received them in the past - but Epic Games is set to join this exclusive list, with recognition for its technological contributions to the games industry. In a blog post announcing the award, BAFTA explained Epic Games had become a "world-renowned industry leader and innovator", pointing to Gears of War, Fortnite and Unreal Engine as examples of its work. "[Epic's] pioneering Unreal Engine, founded 20 years ago, has underpinned some of the most successful and critically acclaimed games, including BAFTA-winning titles Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, What Remains of Edith Finch, Rocket League, Mass Effect, BioShock and the Arkham series," the post states.
