An EEDAR rep has claimed that boss Geoffrey Zatkin was misquoted by Forbes last week in an article that said only 4 percent of games ever make a profit.

“This was just a big mistake,” EEDAR told Edge.

“What Geoffrey said was that only 20 percent of games that start production will end up with a finished product. And of that percentage of finished games, 20 percent will make a profit.”

Apparently everything else from the article’s correct, though.

Thank God for that.
