May 24, 2021 /3BL Media/ - In collaboration with Newzoo, Intel today released a report titled “Diversity and Inclusion in Gaming.” This research identifies industry gaps and key insights in an effort to help make gaming more accessible and inclusive.
"To strengthen diversity and inclusion across the gaming space, the industry needs to listen and act on the needs of its diverse gaming audience, as well as make hardware and software more affordable and accessible. As part of Intel’s desire to better understand its global customer base, Intel is taking key learnings from this report and shaping current internal and external programs to better serve gamers from all backgrounds and walks of life.”
–Marcus Kennedy, general manager of Intel’s Gaming and Esports Segment
Newzoo, a leading provider of games and esports analytics, independently conducted a survey of 1,824 individuals in the United States between the ages of 10 and 65 who self-identified as gamers. The survey reveals that the gaming market lags behind in diverse representation, both in the player base and in the games themselves. Women, people of color, the LGBTQIA+ community and those with disabilities are often overlooked.
Key insights from the study include:
By 2022, there will be around 2.7 billion gamers in the world, and Intel is constantly looking at how to best serve this vast and diverse gaming community. Intel believes sharing these important insights can result in better products industrywide and inform efforts to elevate gamers in underrepresented communities.
