According to a study, the UK games industry is currently struggling in trying to recruit graduates.

As noted by GI.Biz, the games industry was mentioned as the third biggest concern despite all other industries in the study rated the availability of gaining graduate recruits as very low in the study’s list of concerns.

“The UK has always punched above its weight globally in new technologies, and the digital economy is vital to the economic growth of the country in the future,” said Blitz Games CEO Phillip Oliver.

“Video games will be the primary entertainment media of the twenty first century and growth in this sector and other digital sectors will only be powered by a constant flow of fresh, talented, highly skilled technical & creative staff.”
