TURN PASSION INTO A CAREER
There’s no denying that video gaming has massively changed our recreation habits. Evenings on the couch watching TV have been replaced by shooting hoops in NBA, blasting husks in Fortnite or exploring post-apocalyptic Boston in Fallout 4.
But if you’re interested in more than just customising characters, collecting loot and grinding your way up to level 999, why not make game development your career?
According to a July 2020 article by data provider Statista, the global PC gaming market was estimated at almost 37 billion U.S. dollars, while mobile gaming market income was estimated at more than 77 billion U.S.
That’s a lot of Nuka Cola caps.
The gaming industry is growing, and career opportunities are growing along with it.
