Cyberpunk 2077 Loses Its Chance at Game Awards 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 lost the chance to win the Game of the Year title at The Game Awards 2020. CD Projekt RED's game will be unable to compete for the statuette until 2021.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Cyberpunk 2077 will not be taken into account in the vote for the best game of 2020 at The Game Awards.
  2. Geoff Keighley, the event's host, announced that CD Projekt RED's title may compete in 2021.

Cyberpunk 2077will not be taken into account in the Game of the Year 2020 voting at The Game Awards. The event's organizer Geoff Keighley announced this shortly after yesterday's news of delay. The reason for this are the rules of game selection, which states that the games that debut before a certain date, last year it was November 15, are taken into account. In some cases, some small exception are possible, and Cyberpunk 2077 was supposed to be one of them.

As in the case of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from two years ago, which debuted after the final date allowing the game to be included in the selection, Cyberpunk 2077 will be able to compete for the title of GoTY only next year. If CD Projekt RED's game had been released on the original date (November 19), it could have taken up the gauntlet.

Thus, the competition for the title of the best game of the year at this year's The Game Awards gala has become a little more exciting. Although the competing titles are yet to be announced, the list of potential candidates looks very interesting - The Last of Us: Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Half-Life: Alyx, Doom Eternal or Final Fantasy VII Remake. Or maybe some of games that have not been released yet? Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, Demon's Souls or Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War?

Or maybe you have your own proposal in this category? Which title from 2020 do you think was the best?
