Sumo Group are proud to announce that Sumo Digital have received two BAFTA awards for their latest release; Sackboy: A Big Adventure. 

The game received the awards for Best Family Game and Best British Game at the 2021 BAFTA Game Awards and was also nominated within the Best Multiplayer and Best Music categories.

Released in November 2020 as a PlayStation 5 launch title, Sackboy: A Big Adventure received critical acclaim and went on to be nominated across four BAFTA Award categories. The game was developed by Sumo Digital studios in Sheffield and Pune in partnership with Sony XDev.

“It’s been a privilege to work alongside such a talented and dedicated group of people,” said Ned Waterhouse, Design Director at Sumo Sheffield. “Shipping a game is never easy. Shipping a game in 2020 was its own unique challenge and our team rose to that challenge.

“To everyone who went out, bought a copy of the game and joined Sackboy on his latest adventure; thank you. We really appreciate the support.”
