There has been a huge growth in the gaming industry in recent years. In 2020, the global gaming industry’s revenue was set to hit $165 billion, with 2.7 billion gamers worldwide. The gaming industry is considered to be one of the most exciting industries in the tech world because of its importance to culture, entertainment, and technological advancement.
Now, Pakistan is also planning to join this industry officially. The Federal Ministry of Science and Technology told those engaged in video games that his ministry is launching a special project for game players.
Pakistan’s Next Target to Join the Global Gaming Industry
In a tweet on Tuesday, the Minister announced that Pakistan would join the $90 billion-dollar gaming industry under the next program called a “game-changer”.
“If you’re not eager to read but are interested in video games on the smartphone or computer then plan to enter this $90 billion market with a special video game programming scheme.”
