In the third position, we have It Take-Two with around 17% votes. Fourth and fifth positions were secured by Resident Evil Village at 15% and Forza Horizon 5 at only 10% respectively. The victory of Halo Infinite is important, as the votes are given by fans only.

Earlier, 343 Industries majorly struggled to bring this highly awaited title on time, but luckily it managed to turn the big mess into a great success. Above all, it’s pertinent to point out that Halo won this grand trust-based award just one day after the big launch of its campaign mode, which is a truly impressive feat. However, Halo Infinite missed the cut for this year’s Game of the Year nominations in the final round.
