The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences' DICE Awards has wrapped up, and this year's big winner is (surprise) Blizzard's Overwatch.
Overwatch took home six awards, including Game of the Year - adding yet another GOTY trophy to the case for 2016. It also won Outstanding Achievement in Game Design, Outstanding Achievement in Online Gameplay, and Action Game of the Year. The judging panels constitute luminaries within the gaming industry's professional circles
The only game that could top Overwatch in two of its nominated categories was Naughty Dog's Uncharted 4: Thieves Among Us, which won Outstanding Achievement in Animation and Outstanding Technical Achievement.
Overwatch recently surpassed the 25 million player mark worldwide and has dominated gaming media over the past year. Given how much it's pervaded the hearts and minds of millions, it's no surprise that it's taken home so many awards.
Overwatch also dominated headlines for DICE when Game Director Jeff Kaplan took to the stage and delivered the keynote, dropping some Titan concept art that could hint at new heroes to come.
Overwatch has earned acclaimed by other awards shows, and won the Game of the Year award from The Game Awards 2016 and many other outlets.
