DICE Awards 2022 Winners: The Full List

Just like at The Game Awards 2021, It Takes Two has officially won Game of the Year at the 25th annual DICE Awards. While Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart took home the most awards of the night, It Takes Two took home the top prize at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) best games show of 2021. Along with winning Game of the Year, It Takes Two also won the Outstanding Achievement in Game Design award. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which also leads the awards, won the awards for Outstanding Achievement in Animation, Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction, Outstanding Technical Achievement, and Family Game of the Year.

There were 23 categories in total, and Halo Infinite, Lone Echo II, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and Returnal 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 was held in person at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas and followed a week-long industry gathering at the 2022 DICE Summit. The show is now in its sixth year co-hosted by IGN alumni Jessica Chobot (Discovery’s ExpeditionX) and Greg Miller (Kinda Funny), with IGN as its official media partner.
