“It’s been a tumultuous past year to say the least. Game developers have
had to adjust to remote working as well as deal with the general stress that
comes with a global pandemic, all while making games for people who are
in similar situations all over the world. It’s an interesting—if not sadly ironic—
situation to be isolated while creating entertainment that helps people get
through feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anxiety.
With that backdrop, we asked over 3,000 game developers about their work. We found
developers have a particularly keen interest in Sony’s console; a significant percentage of
developers said they delayed a game due to the pandemic; and the two most advanced game
consoles are practically neck-and-neck when it comes to in-development games. On top of
that, we’ve included plenty of your write-in opinions about hot industry topics.
