Destiny bounces back for Bungie

As happened at the DICE Awards last month where Dragon Age: Inquisition took the top award, Destiny, from Halo developer Bungie, went unloved in other categories, making it somewhat mystifying decision.

After a massive showing at the DICE Awards, where it took eight of nine awards it was nominated for, Warners’ Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor went into the BAFTA Games Awards with a soft four nominations. One converted to a win, in the Game Design category.

The event’s most-nominated title, Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation, took a single win from six nominations, while only Monument Valley and The Last of Us: Left Behind won more than one award.
