Horizon Zero Dawn Wins Oustanding Achievement in Video Game Writing at Writers Guild Awards

Horizon Zero Dawn beat out three other nominees for the top video game writing prize.

This year's Writers Guild Award for Outstanding Achievement in Video Game Writing has been awarded to Horizon Zero Dawn, which beat out three other nominated games for the award.

Accepting the award was lead writer Benjamin McCaw and narrative director John Gonzalez who said, "As writers who care deeply about the craft of telling stories, it's incredibly exciting for us to be receiving this award in the company of so many other writers whose work we admire and appreciate."

The other three games nominated in the video game catetory were Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, and Madden NFL 18: Longshot.

Guerrilla Games' Horizon Zero Dawn has been a critical and financial success for the studio, and officially became the fastest-selling first-party new IP after moving 2.6 million units, two weeks after launch.

Meanwhile top writing prize for video game writing for the Writers' Guild of Great Britain went to Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
