How is the pandemic changing games investment? | Investment Summit Online

Wings, Digital Extremes, Kowloon Nights and Galaxy Interactive discuss the impact of COVID-19 on investors and companies looking for finance

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted every facet of living and working in countries across the world, and while the games industry has seen a spike in engagement during lockdown, what does the long-term future hold?

This is one of many questions that will be tackled by an expert panel of speakers -- hosted by GamesIndustry.biz staff writer Rebekah Valentine -- all of whom are active investors at a time when finding opportunities has seldom been more difficult.

You can join Wings Interactive's Cassia Curran, Digital Extremes' Richard Browne, Kowloon Nights' Astrid Refstrup, and Galaxy Interactive's Sam Englebardt to explore the unique challenges of finding investment opportunities during a pandemic.

The livestream of the 45-minute panel begins at 6pm BST, and is embedded below. You can find the full Investment Summit schedule on the official website, and watch all of the talks on the GamesIndustry.biz YouTube channel.
