The European games industry is at "war" with rival territories and must band together, says Antoine Villette, CEO and co-founder of Darkworks.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Villette told of his belief that European games companies needed tax breaks from their governments - not to compete against each other, but rather against other global territories.
"What is important is not the UK fighting against France [or] France against Germany, this is not the point," he said.
"The point is that we, as Europe, are culturally and historically linked together. We are in a worldwide industry and so we have to go together... We are fighting competition as a cultural and economic territory with Canada, China, India.
"Hey, wake up, this is a war. If we want to our children to have at least as good life as we have then we have to fight," he added.
