UK developer trade body Tiga, has said that according to research, 83 per cent of UK game developers now outsource and that dev houses feel outsourcing in general is “fundamental to their business.”

Tiga CEO Richard Wilson said that case studies “show that a well-managed approach to outsourcing can give UK game developers a competitive edge in the global marketplace.”

This sentiment is echoed by David Tolley, outsourcing manager at Monumental Games, who says: “Successful outsource contribution is driven by experience, passion and strong support from internal staff. A few short years ago, outsourcing was almost taboo – now it is a necessity.”
