GDC 2015 Postmortem: Windows 10 Gaming Snaps into Focus

This IDC study considers what IDC believes to be the most important industry development that emerged from the 2015 Game Developers Conference (GDC): how Microsoft's Windows 10 platform could alter the trajectory of the video game industry globally beginning in late 2015.

"With cross-buy, cross-play, and a redesigned Windows Store waiting in the wings, it's clear that Windows 10 has the potential to shake up gaming industry dynamics in 2016 and beyond," says Lewis Ward, IDC's Gaming research director. "The potential of cross-play is a particularly exciting capability that's been a long time coming, and it's likely to generate great interest among developers and gamers alike and potentially across Windows 10–oriented screens of all shapes and sizes."
