The increase in jobs and foreign employees in 2020 to 2022 was significant, especially when big part of growth took place during pandemic. Finland is globally a very attractive centre of game industry. Sourcing experienced professionals locally has been and remains one of the greatest challenges facing the Finnish Game Industry.

In 2021 and 2022, approximately 50 new games / year were published. Compared to the number of studios (232 at the end of 2022) this is a relatively small amount, and is mostly a reflection of the fact that a large portion of games now have a longer lifespan as services, as opposed to the traditional model of single published titles. Studios focus more on further developing what they have already put out rather than bringing out entirely new games. The challenges in the mobile game market are also reflected in the popularity of development platforms. Finland is known as a developer of mobile games, but PC is now almost as popular a platform (64%) as mobile devices (66%). Multi-platform game development is common in Finland, with 59% of studios developing games for two or more platforms.
