The European Games Industry in five years
Ten years after the mobile shift the European games industry is reshaping again.
Will game development become, with upcoming funding schemes and the return of the console as lead platform, again a battle of mass production ?
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 ?
