With more than 2.7 billion gamers around the world (and increasing everyday), gaming is one of the fastest-growing industries globally. Now, in a world of social-distancing and minimum contact with the outside world, the already thriving industry has seen a steep rise as it offers fun distraction and digital human interaction. Pakistan’s gaming industry, encompassing AR, VR, tech-entertainment and e-sports, has seen steady growth as well. It has also received recognition worldwide and holds a promising future for aspiring game developers, investors and designers. However, when it comes to revenue, the country’s gaming industry captures only a fraction of the billion-dollar market. It is therefore important to understand why this is the case and what actions are required to counter this. This panel discussion comprising senior gaming professionals and experts will shed light on the challenges and opportunities faced by the industry, the changes required at the systemic and institutional levels and how creativity can be instilled in Pakistani youth to develop a talent pool that can take the world by storm. And finally, to answer the burning question - will Pakistan’s next unicorn be a gaming company?
