Forums - Sales Discussion - Revenue in german gaming market grows 32% in 2020

The organisation game representing most of the companies present in the german gaming market has released a report about the revenue in 2020. The report is in german though.

https://www.game.de/deutliches-plus-im-corona-jahr-deutscher-games-markt-waechst-um-32-prozent/

The main data is condensed into this graph:

From top to bottom the colored segments on the graph are:

  • abonements
  • fees for online services
  • purchases (I assume the actual game purchases)
  • in-game purchases
  • hardware (consoles, handhelds, gaming pc, accessories)

The numbers are in million € (the european currency).

Was Germany pretty shut down due to Covid-19? If not, this is great growth! If so, it's possibly great growth, but it could also be a temporary shutdown bump.



It's mostly covid growth, all home entertainment has been doing great last year.

Yeah, Covid played a role.

Its tough to take much from recent numbers. We'd expect to see revenue up around the launch of a new gen. But, severe supply constraints certainly kept that growth down. We don't know how much though. And, we expect things to be up because of COVID. But, we also have bo way of knowing how much of this is COVID related.
