The firm behind Unreal Engine has signed up to sponsor the 2016 Develop Awards – specifically one of our highest awards.
Epic Games will be supporting this year's event as both a Gold Partner and Award Partner for Studio of the Year. One of only two Special Awards where the winner is selected by the Develop team, this will be the second time the accolade has been awarded. The previous winner was Rockstar North.
Epic's Mike Gamble will present this year's winner on stage during the ceremony on Wednesday, July 13th.
"We look forward to seeing you all at the Awards – it’s one of my favourite nights of the year," said Gamble. "A huge congratulations to everyone who was nominated. To see such a different range of experiences on offer, from the personal projects to large-scale blockbusters, makes it a great time to in the industry."
