GameDuell Meets Chancellor Merkel at Gamescom

For the first time, this year’s Gamescom was opened by Chancellor Angela Merkel! The Chancellor met with a number of relevant developers in the German games industry, GameDuell included, to emphasize its importance for Germany. It was an incredible opportunity for us to talk to her and learn about her views on the games industry in her home country.

With more than 500 games companies in Germany, there’s no doubt it is an innovative hub for the industry. Since GameDuell is a part of this industry, and has been for 13 years, we were very happy to hear Chancellor Merkel speak of the many ways in which the games industry will be advanced and given more opportunity to grow in the future.

 

We were very honored to meet Angela Merkel and all the other developers at Gamescom 2017 and can’t wait for next year!
