XDS 2023 Insights Report on External Dev Now Available!

We are incredibly excited to release this year’s XDS Insights Report on External Development. The report is intended to identify trends in external development and provide insight into the most significant concerns facing both buyers and sellers.

This edition of the report includes a focus on the various ways geopolitical events — from political instability to climate change — have directly or indirectly impacted external development, among other valuable additions.

The statistics in the report were derived anonymously from over 220 submissions from industry professionals worldwide. Research and data gathered to establish this report was collected by the organizers of the External Development Summit (XDS), with contributions from the XDS Advisory Committee.

Special thanks goes out to:
Guest Author: Caroline Calaway, Senior Producer, Riot Games
Contributing Analyst: Joe Cudiamat, Strategic Advisor, Riot Games

Permission must be requested if you would like to use this information in public articles or presentations.
