Since 2004 Neogames has carried out a study about Finnish Game Industry almost every other year. This is the eighth report in this series. Over the past two decades, the Finnish Game Industry has experienced significant growth. Mobile games have been the primary driver of this growth during the last decade, although other platforms have also played a considerable role. In 2022, the Finnish Game Industry ranks among the top five largest national game industries in Europe by turnover and is a European leader in mobile game development.
This publication aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the Finnish Game Industry in 2022. The data and information presented in the following pages are based on interviews with 134 key game developer studios, supplemented by data from other sources.
A total of 68 game companies, all members of Suomen Pelinkehittäjät ry (Finnish Game Developer Studios Association), are introduced on the studio profile section. The most relevant local game industry organisations are also featured. We wish to thank everyone who has participated in this process. Special thanks to Suomen Pelinkehittäjät ry (Finnish Game Developer Studios Association) and Business Finland/European Union's Recovery and Resilience Facility, RRF, for their financial support, and all the interviewed game studios for their time and insights.
