£32k - the average dev wage

The average earnings for a game developer is £32,203 ($50,794) according to new data.

As part of a comprehensive salary survey conducted by Develop and MCV, answers from 298 game developers across the globe were compiled to give the final figure.

The £32,203 wage figure is balanced by a wide range of disciplines in the development sector, from art to coding to audio, production and design. A breakdown by job title can be found below.

The annual salary for developers back in 2010 was put at £31,964, meaning this year’s salary has risen by about £240.

But inflation rate calculations from the Consumer Price Index suggest the 2010 average salary would today be at £32,603.
