Gaming industry
Gaming is a key sector


Sweden is one of the leading nations in the world when it comes to the development of internationally respected and accessible games of the highest quality. West Sweden plays a significant role in this phenomenon.

This is due to many things but because, among other things, we have a culture of people of high technical skills, good at working collectively, ability to deliver on time and a great entrepreneurial approach. There is educational support too and Skövde University has Northern Europe's largest and Sweden's widest and most distinguished range of computer game education. Electronic Arts' Ghost Games studio, which developed Need for Speed Rivals, is located in Gothenburg

Sweden has firmly established itself as one of the world’s epicentres for developing and producing innovative, original, mass-market computer games, drawing in a deep pool of foreign talent and contributing significantly to the Swedish economy. West Sweden has created a niche for itself and there are exciting plans underway to further boost the gaming industry in Gothenburg.

There is a buzz in the 'gaming' air and interested talent should take a closer look at the wide range of opportunities available.
