Two Xbox Games Studios included in Golden Joystick awards

Both Gears 5 and The Outer Worlds are up for the Golden Joystick’s highest award. The Ultimate Game of the Year 2019 vote features 12 titles, with the two Xbox Games Studios included in the mix. Of course, The Outer Worlds‘ publishing deal was sorted before Microsoft acquired the studio, but it bodes well for the future.
