XDS Insights Report

Wondering what the top tools are for external development, or the top reasons developers engage service providers? Or perhaps top challenges faced in the global distribution of development? The annual XDS Insights Report provides understanding into the changing trends in external development as it becomes an increasingly integral part of game development.

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 research and data gathered to establish this report was collected by the organizers of the External Development Summit, with contributions from the XDS Advisory Committee.
