Despite recent headlines questioning the stability of the gaming industry – with layoffs said to be worse than ever and PlayStation closing its London studio – the latest 2024 Unity Gaming Report is putting a positive spin on the uncertain future of this industry. Developers are said to be heavily reliant on the use of AI (with 62% of studios incorporating AI in their workflows). 

It seems that not even the best laptops for game development are enough to get the job done anymore, with developers using generative AI to meet demands and get games released faster. At least that's according to the Unity Gaming Report 2024 which was released yesterday by the development company, coinciding with the 2024 Game Developers Conference (GDC) happening in San Francisco.
