ZAGREB, July 12 (Hina) – A gaming industry campus with a faculty, dorms and an eSports hall with 4,000 seats will be built in the Croatian town of Novska, Vecernji List daily said on Sunday.
The success of just one gaming startup can repay to the state everything invested so far in our project to make Novska a regional video game development centre, the PISMO enterprise incubator, the only one specialised in gaming in the wider region, told the paper, adding that billions were made in this industry and that just one hit game could bring in hundreds of millions of kuna.
Globally, the gaming industry generated US$ 120 billion in revenues in 2019, up 4% on the year.
PISMO’s next project is the gaming industry campus in which HRK 420 million will be invested. The campus will spread over 90,000 square metres.
It will comprise a gaming accelerator, two student dorms, an enterprise incubator for eSports with a hall with 4,000 seats, and a faculty offering a five-year course in programming and graphic arts.
