In an effort to claim a larger share of the global game development outsourcing market, the Game Development Association of the Philippines (GDAP) has established a network of foreign developers and clients. Research shows that game outsourcing is set to grow to $1.1 billion this year and $2.5 billion by 2010. Outsourcing will then represent 40% of the total budget for video game creation.
Collision Studios, an award winning US game development firm, is among several companies outsourcing to Filipino service providers. In a forum on trends in the video game industry, Philippe Erwin, Collision CEO, commended the visual arts skills of the Filipinos and cited their English fluency as a major advantage quoting: “It's easier to deal with someone who can also speak the language.”
Darrell Benvenuto, president of game development services provider, Digital Octane Inc., predicts that the Philippines is poised to capitalize on the rapidly growing demand for outsourcing in the industry with major game developers already outsourcing to neighboring countries Korea, India and China.
