As with The Game Awards 2021, It Takes Two was officially named Game of the Year at the 25th Annual DICE Awards. While Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart took home most of the evening’s awards, It Takes Two took home the ultimate prize at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) show celebrating the best games of 2021.

In addition to winning Game of the Year, It Takes Two also took home the award for Outstanding Achievement in Game Design. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which also topped the nominations, won Outstanding Achievement in Animation, Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction, Outstanding Technical Achievement, and Family Game of the Year.

There were 23 categories in all, and Halo Infinite, Lone Echo II, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and Returnal all received multiple awards. The show also honored NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon, who was inducted into the AIAS Hall of Fame in 2022, and Microsoft’s Phil Spencer, who received the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The 25th Annual DICE Awards were held in-person at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, following the week-long industry gathering at DICE Summit 2022. The show was co-presented in its sixth year by IGN graduate Jessica Chobot (Discovery’s ExpeditionX) and Greg Miller (Kinda Funny) moderated and IGN acted as official media partner.
