European devs favoring PS4 over One, looking toward crowdfunding

You're up, EuropeEuropean devs favoring PS4 over One, looking toward crowdfunding photo



GDC Europe has polled over 400 developers in their second annual European State of the Industry Survey. There are a few trends worth looking at. PC and mobile gaming are still big. 58% of respondents are working on PC titles, 65% currently working on mobile titles. With respect to the newest generation of consoles, 18% are working on a game destined for PS4, while only 13% are working on an Xbox One game. 

European developers are also getting wide-eyed for crowd funding. Under 10% are using crowd funding for their projects, but 41% plan to use it for future projects. Developers also see Sweden (where DICE and Mojang are located) as a current hub for the European industry, with Germany or the UK set to overtake it in a few years time. Perhaps because nearly half the respondents said the UK has the best tax incentives for developers.
