GamesIndustry.biz presents... 2016: The Year In Numbers

Check out some of the key facts and figures from the past twelve months with our handy infographic

Every year brings with it surprising deals, notable new releases, worldwide sensations and mind-blowing sums of money being poured into acquisitions, investments and more. Individually, these numbers make for good headlines but can be difficult to collect in a way that truly represents the biggest news on the year.

Undaunted, the GamesIndustry.biz team has tried to do just that. Below you'll find what is hopefully the first in a new annual tradition: The Year In Numbers, summarising all of the most impressive or important deals and developments of the past twelve months. We've incorporated mergers, media and marketing, as well as the ongoing search for new IP in the triple-A space, the major hardware launches of the year and the latest totals in the world of crowdfunding.

Read through our full infographic below and see if there's a few stats you can use to show off your knowledge at the next meeting or office Christmas party. Click here for a larger version.
