Sports Interactive wins MCV/Develop Legend Award
Sports Interactive were recognised at last week’s MCV/Develop Awards in London, picking up the much-coveted Legend Award for “our incredible and ongoing body of work” over the last 30 years that we have been releasing games.
In the 20+ years since their inception, the MCV/Develop Awards have become an unrivalled platform for the recognition of industry excellence. They are the only UK’s only awards for the whole games industry, recognising all of its key areas: development and publishing, retail and distribution, plus marketing, PR, events and media.
Award finalists are determined by a panel of industry experts, with MCV/Develop subscribers then getting the opportunity to vote. SI are the second recipients of the Legend Award after Microsoft studio Rare picked up the inaugural gong in 2020.
Speaking after winning the award, Sports Interactive Studio Director Miles Jacobson said: “It’s awesome to see Sports Interactive recognised in this way by our peers in the industry.
“The award is a celebration of us releasing games for 30 years but none of it would be possible without each and every one of our current team, as well as those team members no longer at the studio and, of course, our researchers, translators and moderators through the ages.
“I’m so grateful for the wonderfully talented people I get to work with every day. Here’s to the next 30 years of great games!”
