Featured Session: All About Games. Data, Trends, and What’s Next for 2023
Join video games professor Joost van Dreunen for an update on the biggest trends in interactive entertainment. After two years of super-growth, the $200 billion games industry has switched to hard mode. Consumer demand softened, esports took a massive financial haircut, cloud gaming claimed its first casualty with Google Stadia exiting, and the collapse of crypto took a toll.
In response, game companies have started to consolidate, outsource production to their players, and lean into novelties like generative AI. You’ll hear about recent trends, winners & losers, and an outlook on what’s to come.
