Game Development

Game development is the process of creating a video game.  Development is undertaken by a game developer, which may range from a single developer to a global team of developers. In 2013, salaried game developers in the U.S. made an average of $83,060 last year, down 2 percent from the year prior. Business and management salaries topped all other disciplines, averaging $101,572, followed by audio professionals ($95,682) and programmers ($93,251).
