Game Over? Canadian Video Game Techs Heading To Jobs In Other Sectors
The pandemic has caused many businesses to move online, increasing demand for the digital expertise once confined to the gaming industry.
The video game industry is having trouble meeting market demand, and telecommuting seems to be exacerbating the situation, as employees no longer face the limitations created by national borders.
The Entertainment Software Association of Canada (ESAC) is in the process of analyzing the results of a survey of its members to assess the situation.
Without precise figures, it is difficult to confirm precisely how many jobs in the industry need to be filled. The hope is the survey will provide that information; its results are to be revealed in November.
