Game Industry Investments: Opportunities & Challenges

Mar 12, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Recording: Game Industry Investments: Opportunities & Challenges, Mar 12, 2022

We’ve seen a meteoric rise in investments in the video games industry: by the fall of 2021, there were over 700 investment and M&A deals, with nearly $35 billion in total investments and over $35 billion in mergers and acquisitions — indeed, the first quarter of 2021 eclipsed all of 2020 in amount of games investments! John Sutyak of DDM will host a panel to discuss how the industry built to this moment in time and what the outlook for games investment is in the years to come. Joining him will be an investor, a games developer and a games industry lawyer to explain the ins and outs of the investment process and explain what different parties are looking for when looking at investing — and when choosing an investor.
