The Golden Joystick Awards is a long-running European game awards ceremony with nearly 40 years of history where game players from around the globe vote on the titles or studios of their choosing. Winner of four awards this year, survival horror title Resident Evil Village is the sequel to Resident Evil 7 biohazard and provides even more highly engaging gameplay, as well as a sense of scale that outdoes its predecessor and storytelling that rises above the genre of horror games. Utilizing the company's proprietary RE ENGINE, the game maximized the capabilities of next-generation platforms to produce stunning, photorealistic visuals and cutting-edge 3D audio, drawing players the world over into a deeply immersive gameplay experience. This led it to be awarded top honors with Ultimate Game of the Year, as well as awards for PlayStation Game of the Year, Best Audio and Best Performance for Maggie Robertson's portrayal of the character Lady Dimitrescu.

Moreover, Capcom was also honored with Studio of the Year, which is awarded to the most highly rated company by game players, having garnered support for releasing multiple high-quality titles including Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all users by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.
