Activision Publishing is proud to announce that at last night’s British Academy Children’s Awards (BAFTA) ceremony, Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure® won the Best Video Game category, cementing Activision’s place at the forefront of creative and innovative gaming for children.  

One of the most illustrious and respected award ceremonies in the UK calendar, Activision is proud to have been recognised by BAFTA in the video game category for Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure®, which comes shortly after the launch of Skylanders Giants, the latest game in the popular franchise.   

Commenting on the win Peter Hepworth, UK Managing Director of Activision Blizzard said; “We are absolutely delighted to have won best video game at the British Academy Children’s Awards.  This is a proud moment for Activision and development studio Toys for Bob and with Skylanders Giants proving to be a hit with children, we’re all very excited about the future of Skylanders.”
