Crysis 2 named Best German Game at Deutscher Computerspielpreis awards

Adding to the array of awards received by Crytek’s Crysis 2 since its release last year, the groundbreaking action-shooter was today named Best German Game at the prestigious Deutscher Computerspielpreis awards in Berlin.

The awards exist to honor innovative games in a range of categories, with the label of Best German Game being reserved for a title the panel feels excels technically and artistically whilst offering excitement to as wide an audience as possible. Crysis 2 emerged victorious despite stiff competition.

“We’re very proud to pick up this award, and appreciative that the panel picked out Crysis 2.” said Avni Yerli, Managing Director of Crytek. “The ongoing recognition for Crysis 2 shows the game has a resonance outlasting the positive initial recognition, and we hope players will continue to discover its unique blend of action, strategy and groundbreaking technology for a long time to come.”

The Deutscher Computerspielpreis awards are decided by Germany’s Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) in cooperation with the German Trade Association of Interactive Entertainment Software (BIU) and the German Game Developers Association (G.A.M.E.). Award recipients are chosen by an independent jury consisting of experts drawn from the fields of science, media education, youth media protection, politics, the press and the games industry.
