"The popularity of the award last year has shown the huge appetite the UK has for mobile games. As the UK’s biggest and fastest network, and with our launch of 5G since the last awards offering even faster speeds and lower latency, we play a crucial role in providing players with the best possible mobile gaming experience," said Pete Jeavons, Director of Brand Marketing at EE.

"This year, we will once again be celebrating innovation and outstanding quality with the EE Mobile Game of The Year Award, giving our customers and the public the chance to have their say and vote for their favourite game."

The inaugural EE Mobile Game of the Year Award went to Old School RuneScape in April 2019. This year's award will be presented at the British Academy Game Awards on April 2nd 2020.
