After COVID-19, the world may not generally be the same again, as millions of souls have been lost by the virus and the way the world interacts has changed. There is no difference in the game. A member of the game community died on COVID-19, the game convention was canceled and the title was postponed. It was rewarding, but it could also give rise to some new ideas and positivity. And game developers have begun to rethink rent and how to do their jobs as more remote opportunities emerge.
There is no doubt that COVID-19 has influenced the development of many video games. Resident Evil 7 director Tadashi Sato has been concerned about horror survival games for months, but the team has literally disbanded for a period of time. Other teams were forced to work remotely and the game release date was returned. However, humanity is adapting and the industry may find that teleworking can be very fruitful in game development. Some members of game development stay on the team for years, but individuals often work on different games with different companies through contracts. Jordan Remos, a writer with titles such as Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Ghost of Tsushima, has lived in three cities in five years. Lemos was recently able to get remote performance with Aspyr Media Inc. To Star Wars: A remake of the Knights of the Old Republic, and more companies are aware that this option may be needed.
Lemos recently talked to Bloomberg about his telework and believes there is a turning point in game development. He believes that the negative aspects of telework are negligible and the positive aspects outweigh them. Lemos believes that game studios, which refuse to allow talented people to work remotely, will miss highly skilled individuals. The industry has adapted more than just the gaming world. Video games are certainly unique, but other industries are looking to remote opportunities and finding savings.
Remote work not only provides a larger pool of talent and employee base that can provide more flexibility, but also significantly saves the size of the office and the money needed to do individual work in the field. You can also. According to a Bloomberg article, French gaming company Dontnod Entertainment offered telecommuting to all employees, 65% of whom accepted the offer. CEO Oskar Guilbert believes the team will be able to work remotely in the future as two games (Tell MeWhy and Twin Mirror) were sent during the pandemic.
