Default Video Game Creator Burnout

June 13th, 2019, 13:29
Just an interesting article I read over breakfast. Of course there are many people who work far worse jobs than what these people are doing … and get paid a hell of a lot less on top of it. Still it was interesting to read another view on the industry.

Indeed, the chief executive of Rockstar Games, publisher of the hugely popular Red Dead Redemption 2, bragged in an interview last year that people there were working 100-hour weeks to finish that game in time for its scheduled release date. Another top gaming company, Activision Blizzard, said in February it was cutting 800 jobs even as it reported record 2018 revenues of $7.5 billion.
