Eutechnyx’s Darren Jobling has issued a stark warning on the issue of American domination of publishing and development, saying that both the creative and business side of the European games industry is in dire straights.

“The games industry is currently a US dominated industry, everything we had left in Europe has pretty much been decimated,” he said, speaking to GamesIndustry.biz.

“I was talking about it on the publishing side, obviously there’s only Ubisoft and Eidos of any size and I think that’s pretty much it.

“What concerns me, is that if you look at publishing what happened was Infogrames came in buying up Ocean, buying up Gremlin, and the whole thing collapsed, and that just worries me about these people coming in buying developers.”
