Salaries In The Video Game Industry
So you want to be the next Hideo Kojima? We are not saying it is impossible, but brilliant and dedicated minds like Kojima’s do not come around very often. However, with the right ideas and hard working attitude, you can really make an impact in the industry. The video game industry is no different than any other professional industry. If you want a video game career, you have to have the right credentials.
Developers are looking for people who attended video game design school or people with degrees in video game design. If you are one of the lucky ones to an internship or entry level job, don’t expect the glamour you may think comes with the profession. Chances are you will start out at the bottom in one of the worst jobs the industry has to offer. So once you work your way up, how much can you expect to make?
