Twelve weeks into the actors’ strike against selected video game companies, the WGA announced its nominees for outstanding achievement in videogame writing during 2016.
None of the nominations are for on struck games. Brian Bloom was nominated for Activision’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and while SAG-AFTRA is on strike against five Activision games, Infinite Warfare isn’t one of them.
Winners will be announced February 19 at the WGA Awards in New York and Los Angeles.
