This isn’t the first time a video game has won a Grammy. In 2011, Cviliazation 4 composer Christopher Tin took home an award for the opening song for the game, “"Baba Yetu." Wintory marks the second time a game has been included in the proceedings.

The 55th Grammy Awards will air on February 10, 2013.
