The Market for Game Developers in Vancouver, BC

Vancouver's rich game development history dates back to the late 1980s, making it one of the oldest cities in North America for video game development. Keeping up with trends and new technology, the industry has undergone major shifts in recent years. Traditional AAA console games are still popular, but technological advancements have made way for e-sports, mobile game development, and AR/VR attracting a new generation of developers and players.

Throughout this change, Vancouver has grown into a global hub for entertainment and technology providing game developers with a wide range of opportunities to choose from.

According to the Vancouver Economic Commission, the city boasts more than 170 development studios producing world-class games, generating billions in annual revenue and employing thousands of people in Vancouver. Among them, many of the top video game companies call the city home including Electronic Arts (EA), Nintendo, Microsoft Studios, Take 2 Interactive, Relic Entertainment/SEGA and more.

Results from the Entertainment Software Association of Canada's 2021 industry survey share that video game companies contribute $5.5 billion to Canada’s GDP and employ 32,000 full-time professionals, an increase of 17 per cent since 2019. Those looking to break into this exciting field should know that there are opportunities for junior-level and intermediate developers, as these categories make up more than 75 per cent of the Canadian video game workforce. Whether you're just getting started, or leveling up your skills, there are many exciting careers for you in game development!
