Polish game industry

Since 2019, the GIC team has been carrying out an unprecedented program to research Poland’s game industry, with the primary aim of filling the principal holes in knowledge about the sector. The project is run continuously, with constant data gathering. That way, regular updates will keep relevant all the knowledge about the industry. And it will always be available on this page.

The first results of this effort were contained in “The Game Industry of Poland – Report 2020” report. It provided much valuable information forming a coherent view of the sector, with many completely new and first-time available insights and data. This and the next reports remain the primary source of information about the Polish game industry since, sparking many publications and discussions.
