The European Games Industry in five years

Or will small story driven or AR/VR content dominate the picture?
What's the influence of the upcoming eSport on the production of new games ?
Influence of Brexit and EU policy on the ecosystem. How will all this affect the European Games developer community ?

Bio
Erik Robertson (b. 1961) has never had a proper job. Instead, he has with varying success had own businesses, mostly where the IT and marketing fields touch. He has started a dozen or so companies, and works in the computer games industry since 1997, with development in Redikod AB, also with EU research and innovation grants. He works for the computer games industry through Nordic Game Resources AB, not least with Nordic Game, Europe's largest conference for games developers. His latest start-up is Nordic Game Ventures AB, a VC for the Nordic games industry. Erik designed and in 2006-2012 led the Nordic Game Program, a part of the official Nordic cultural co-operation between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Erik has also founded several trade organisations including the European Games Developer Federation. He has started several entrepreneur and start-up support organisations, has Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Business Administration degrees from Lund University, and has also published internationally in the field of entrepreneurship research.
