Abstract

Due to the COVID-19, quarantine has been introduced as a policy to restrain the expansion of the pandemic in China. As the policy successfully controlled the pandemic, it also had adverse effects on the economy of China indicated by decreasing in the Chinese GDP by 6.8% in the first quarter Error! Reference source not found. But the video game industry seems to have a different trend than others have: the video game industry has experienced a great expansion during the pandemic. Nearly all analyses about other industries in China are based on the history of SARS in 2003. However, that period of history is meaningless when the video game industry is considered. With the development of new technology, such as the Internet, people have to view the video game industry from a new viewpoint. Through analyzing published data and reports, this paper will present both positive and negative impacts that the pandemic had on the video game industry and provide suggestions that can potentially help middle-sized and small-sized video game companies and independent developers come through the pandemic.
