Destiny was the surprise winner of “Best Game in 2015” at the BAFTA Game Awards on Thursday, March 12th, 2015.

Bungie’s first-person shooter fought off competition from the likes of Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Monument Valley to win the prestigious prize.

Accepting the award, Bungie president Harold Ryan said: “It’s always a labour of love that we do because of the passion of the fans. They really are the ones who drive you to put the energy and time into putting the game together.”
