  • GamesIndustry.biz - Sugar rush financials don't mean we've dodged the COVID bullet.
    "Things are not the same this time around. The games business hasn't really been 'recession-proof' for quite some time, and COVID-19 is shaping up to create what may be the sharpest economic contraction in history, as well as creating a tough climate for many of the activities upon which the industry relies. This quarter's financial results are certainly sweet, but they're a sugar rush; it would be foolish to assume that the crash from this high isn't coming, or that the booming revenues we saw as the pandemic's effects started to be felt indicate that the games business is going to walk away from this unscathed."
