The BFI have announced that certifications for video game tax relief increased to 65 per cent in Q1 2017.
This is an increase compared to Q1 2016 as a year-on-year comparison as 58 games recieved final certification compared to 35 in 2016.
A total of 212 games have recieved tax relief in the last year, which is a 59.4 per cent increase from the 2015/16 figures.
"[Video games tax relief] is fuelling confidence and growth and is a real driving force behind the creation of innovative UK content," said director of Ukie, Dr Jo Twist. "The continued year-on-year rise of games businesses applying for Video Games Tax Relief is a clear message to government that it is critical that the funding is protected and improved over the important political period we are entering into."
