From Insider today:
‘Growth follows £11.5m of investment into the sector by Scottish Enterprise since 2011. Turnover in the Scottish computer games sector has soared almost £80m during the past five years, according to new data. The number of video games companies in Scotland has trebled from 35 in 2011 to 105 in 2017, with the combined turnover increasing from £36.9m in 2011 to £115.7m by 2015, figures released by the SNP show. The party said support from government body Scottish Enterprise has underpinned the growth in the sector. In an answer to a parliamentary question submitted by SNP MSP Ash Denham, Fiona Hyslop said Scottish Enterprise had invested £11.5m in 38 video game companies over the five years since 2011.’
The role of Scotland’s universities has also been key to this success. See:
