Spreading the word about the Game Audio Industry Study 2017!

Hello everyone,

some weeks have passed since the results of the Game Audio Industry Study 2017 were published. I am happy and thankful to see that the study indeed has received some attention!

There were presentations of the results at Devcom Conference (21st August) and SoundTrack Cologne (24th August), both in Cologne, Germany. It was great to discuss the findings with other professionals and teachers from within the industry. My impression was, that some findings from the study actually had some (hopefully positive) influence on the audience’s perception on the industry.

The study has also received some press coverage.
Martin Lorber and his EA Blog für digitale Spielkultur (Blog about the culture of digital gaming) dedicated a complete blog post to this study: https://spielkultur.ea.de/allgemein/game-audio-branche-in-deutschland-studie-veroeffentlicht/
Behind the Audio featured the study on their website, too: https://behindtheaudio.com/2017/08/results-game-audio-industry-study-2017-available-now/

I do hope that this coverage of the study can help in providing info and knowledge to many people. Thanks for everyone who has supported me in spreading the word about the Game Audio Industry Study 2017.

The results of the Game Audio Industry Study 2017 are available now!

Today I am proud to release the results of the Game Audio Industry Study 2017, which I have worked on for a long time. You can read about the findings right here on this website.

The findings of the survey are presented in 5 categories:
1. Work and environment
2. Education and career
3. Working and business practices in game development projects
4. Compensation and income
5. Contract terms and rights

I am happy to see that the analysis provided important information and data on numerous topics that have not been evaluated in game audio research before.
I hope that the study can help people working or aspiring to work in game audio in their careers and that the study can be a basis and inspiration for future research in game audio.

Most of the findings are already published on this website for free. To get the complete report with all the findings (also for free!), please get in touch with me.

Don’t hesitate to message me if you have any questions about the study or its results or if you have any other requests.

Thank you!

Yannick Süß
