Driving The Industry

The European Games Developer Federation is committed to the stimulation and development of a stable, vibrant and creative European games development sector that is competitive globally and recognized culturally.

The federation represents some 1500 studios based in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, which together employ about 25,000 people. The European computer and video games industry, including distributors and students in game educations, encompasses almost 100,000 individuals.
