4 keyfacts we learned about eSports from EEDAR at the GDC

Two weeks ago, the Game Developers Conference (GDC) took place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Since eSports experienced a tremendous growth in the last couple of years, it comes as no surprise that a large part of the panels and lectures dealt with the eSports market and associated topics.

One of the speakers was Patrick Walker, VP Insights and Analytics at EEDAR, who already contributed a great piece of content within our expert roundup at the end of last year. At GDC, Patrick talked about ‘Understanding Engagement in the Rapidly Expanding Gaming Universe‘ including insights regarding eSports audience, eSports prize money and eSports tournaments.

Below you can find four keyfacts from the EEDAR presentation by Patrick Walker at GDC 2016:
