A new study from the CMP Game Group has determined that there are more than 39,700 professionals developing or publishing games across the US and 8100 within Canada.
More than 46 per cent of people creating games within the United States are based in California, with the next highest concentration of game professionals in Washington State, at nearly 12 per cent, and Texas, at just over 7 per cent.
Seven states, including New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Florida, have more than 1000 game professionals working in them. These numbers do not include persons working in public relations, marketing, legal, and other game-related service industries.
