TIGA 2018 Awards

Sony Wins Best Publisher at TIGA Games Industry Awards 2018

The Independent Game Developers’ Association (TIGA), based in the UK, is a trade association for game developers and digital publishers. It just had its 2018 award ceremony, and there were plenty of reasons for Sony to bust out the champagne. One of the most notable awards was Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe’s win as the best publisher of the year.

It’s no secret that Sony has dominated the market when it comes to quality console exclusives, but it’s still nice to have the acknowledgement. Additionally, God of War‘s fresh take on the existing franchise earned it the title of best action and adventure game. Other non-exclusive winning games that happened to appear on the PS4 included Battlezone, Gran Turismo, Human: Fall Flat, Hidden Agenda, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, F1 2017, and TerraTech.
