22 exhibitors present innovations and trends of the Italian computer and video games industry at gamescom 2023.
Gamescom 2023 in Cologne is the most important European trade show dedicated to video games. ICE /ITA – The Italian Trade Agency, in collaboration with the trade association IIDEA (Italian Interactive & Digital Entertainment Association), organizes for the seventh edition an Italian pavilion presenting 22 leading companies belonging to this sector.
The Italian video game industry also shows a clear growth trend. With a revenue of EUR 2.2 billion in 2022, the Italian games market is a significant industry. The sector showed a growth of 50% in comparison to the previous year, with more than 2.400 employees working in 160 companies. In recent years, the Italian video game industry has experienced considerable growth as evidenced by numerous international acquisitions.
Italian developers are predominantly focused on developing premium video games for consoles and PCs, and their global recognition is growing for their ability to develop AA-AA quality video games with independent video game costs. In addition to the development of commercial game titles, Italian companies are also skilled in B2B projects in fields such as tourism, health and cultural heritage but also in work-for-hire.
