Are Indie Games Changing the Industry?

Posted on September 4, 2017 at 9:28 pm

Indie games now have a lot more influence and more developers are following suit. Even gaming boss Tim Sweeney, who runs Epic Games, thinks that independently developed games could be the future. He claims that games with enormous budgets are not necessarily guaranteed to succeed anymore and recently, there have been instances of these types of games making a loss.

So what does the future of video games look like? According to Sweeney, far more exciting. He thinks the most exciting work being done is independent game developers at the moment. This makes their games more appealing and more saleable.

Some of the most popular games to come from independent developers are Rocket League, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, Spelunky, The Stanley Parable and Kerbal Space Program. However, there is still a long way to go. Despite great successes in the independent market, Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed and other big franchises still tend to top the charts.
