Industry Outlook
Next-gen consoles, PCs and mobile gaming are pushing the limits
  • The video game and film industries are continuously growing despite recent economic downturns. Experts predict a healthy business with ever increasing profits. Animated feature films dominated the box office in 2015. Also, the sales of the latest edition of next-gen consoles, PS 4 and XBOX One, are still going strong since its launch in 2013. On the indie games front, successful Kickstarter campaigns have changed the playing field.

    For the concept artist, it means a healthy and expanding job market.
