Assassin's Creed IV, The Last of Us nominated for 2014 Writers Guild Awards
Other titles nominated include Batman: Arkham Origins, God of War: Ascension, and Lost Planet 3; winner will be announced on February 1.
The Writers Guild of America has announced the nominations for outstanding achievement in writing for video games for this year's Writers Guild Awards that will be held February 1, 2014. The nominees are:
- Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
- Batman: Arkham Origins
- God of War: Ascension
- The Last of Us
- Lost Planet 3
To be considered, the game must have been released between December 1, 2012 and November 30, 2013 and credited writers needed to have been members of the WGA Videogamer Writers Caucus.
If Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag wins this year, it will be two straight victories for Ubisoft, as PlayStation Vita game Assassin's Creed III: Liberation won last year. In 2011, Ubisoft also won for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.
2014 marks the seventh year of the Video Game Writing Award, which honors "outstanding achievement" for writing in games.
Of course, the Writers Guild Awards also honor the television and movie businesses, among others. AMC's Breaking Bad is nominated for best drama, while Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street has been nominated for best adapted screenplay.
