No Games BAFTAs in 2008

23 04 2008


It’s been announced that this years game BAFTAs have been canceled. It makes sense, given that the October timeslot excluded a good many Christmas releases, and unreleased games were shortlisted last year.

Hopefully, they can make the awards more relevant. Outside of mainstream press, I’ve heard little but cynicism about them, one person going so far as to call them “A patronising pat on the head from old media”. Developers seem to care a lot more about the Game Developers Choice and Develop awards.
