Washington state ranks No. 2 nationwide for annual video game industry economic output at $11.6B

(Halo Infinite Photo)

Washington state’s video games industry overtook Texas last year and claimed the No. 2 spot for total economic output as the U.S. video game industry grew to new heights yet again.

Those are two takeaways from a new report published by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the games industry’s trade organization in the U.S.

In Washington state, the local games industry represents 48,808 jobs, with an economic output of $11.6 billion. This puts it ahead of all other states besides California, which has an effectively insurmountable lead. A little over half of all game development nationwide is done in California, which accounts for $51 billion of the more than $90 billion in economic output generated nationwide in 2019.

The ESA defines economic output as “the total value of the goods and services produced in the economy.”

Washington has been an important overall part of the U.S. games
