Frontier Developments founder and CEO David Braben has suggested it could be just two to three years until physical games "more or less" go away.
Braben revealed this prediction during a recent GamesIndustry.biz Investment Summit Online, in which he noted that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the industry has seen "an acceleration in the transition from physical to digital":
"We've really seen an acceleration in the transition from physical to digital. You know, we've all been seeing that happen quite quickly. But that is a good thing. It's probably two to three years before physical more or less goes away I think, and it's probably accelerated that timescale a bit."
The Frontier CEO also went on to talk more about COVID-19's impact on the industry and the company in general, including his experience of working with publishers and securing investment. You can watch the full interview above.
