Noting that the players play games from different channels and devices at the same time, Altan said, “Today there are 35 million mobile, 22 million PC, 17 million console players. As the day goes on, the gender distribution in the actors becomes more balanced. It is seen that 45% of the actors are women and 55% are men.”
“The volume of Turkey’s gaming industry is $880 million”
Nilay Altan stated that Turkey ranks 18th in the world in the gaming industry with an income of $880 million, and first in the Middle East and North Africa (MEDA region), and gave the following information:
“It becomes important to start playing games and to create common interests in order to interact with the new generation. The game is now moving towards professional rather than entertainment, and players follow the game world with great passion. In this direction, the important components of the game world are gathered under three headings: devices, game contents and infrastructure. As Turk Telekom, we are further strengthening our strong infrastructure with our ongoing investments. 90% of the players have internet connections at home, nearly 70% use fiber internet.”
Stating that they aim to increase the fiber infrastructure length of 331 thousand kilometers, Altan said, “We are also increasing the gaming experience with our device portfolio and our Playstore platform, which includes many games.”
