Minister for Superannuation, Financial Service and the Digital Economy Senator, Jane Hume has announced a Digital Economy Package for the video game industry, which is deemed to be “the most significant federal tax incentive to be implemented anywhere in the world.” The new funding will give Australian studios support to take on new projects and drive growth.
Social distancing and stay-home restrictions have brought about a boom in the number of Australians playing video games, with 762,000 new gamers getting into gaming during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, according to a new survey.
Things move fast in both the tech world and politics. Once the darling of the political landscape, it seems the Australian games development industry again needs to raise its profile. As such, the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA) chief executive Ron Curry has got on to the front foot with an open letter to Senator Mitch Fifield, the Minister for Communications and the Arts.
