Leading games business publication MCV (The Market for Computer & Video Games) has named the 100 most influential games industry executives – those reshaping the business in the UK and beyond.
The inaugural MCV Brit List features men and women from all different disciplines supporting UK video game businesses. It also names a handful of the famous Brits flying the flag for UK creativity and intelligence on the global stage.
From Twitch to Mind Candy, and Xbox to Apple, the Brit List is a definitive guide to the creative and commercial British brains working in video games.
The list was collated after an extensive entry and lobbying period, and then voted for by a judging panel featuring some of the industry’s most high-profile experts.
Both legends and rising stars feature, with hugely respected leaders such as Rockstar Games founders Dan and Sam Houser, Ukie CEO Dr Jo Twist, and PlayStation CEO Andrew House sat alongside the likes of Tomb Raider writer Rhianna Pratchett, the creators of Yogscast (the UK’s most popular YouTube channel) and Roberta Lucca, co-founder of Bossa Studios.
The full list, featuring interviews and profiles of the 100, is available to download on iPad or view in your browser at: http://www.mcvuk.com/digital-edition. And it’s absolutely free. Featured content will also be posted on www.mcvuk.com over the next seven days.
“The Brit List is a toast to those men and women transforming the games business in the UK – and those flying the flag for British excellence abroad” said Michael French, Publisher of Games at Intent Media.
“The power of UK creativity really means this list could comfortably have been much longer. Congratulations to those that made the list.”
