The COVID-19 pandemic has affected most production involving live-action television, commercials and feature films, however, one business that is still going full speed ahead is the production of digital content. Already on an upswing due to increasing demand from streaming platforms, it is now attracting new interest and new investments, triggering a boom that may outlast the current crisis.
Disruption of game development is also strongly felt. Outsourced AAA game development works to China, have faced delays during the lockdown and will continue to face delays since the same disruption is hitting other markets. In recent years, game companies have started to outsource their work to development studios in Southeast Asia and India, both of which are now experiencing a boom as a result of the current situation.
Malaysian digital content studios should grab these opportunities to stay competitive and take advantage of the situation.
