In 2023 the global video game market is projected to reach revenues of over US$370 billion.

With the advent of new trends such as the metaverse, NFTs and blockchain gaming, we are observing video game sector clients continually exploring new ways to enhance the player experience. At the same time, the legal issues of the video game sector have become increasingly complex, with a growing number of legal challenges faced by developers, publishers and distributors, with such issues as an increased interest in consumer and minor protection and its possible variation between the jurisdictions in some of the aspects such as monetization schemes.
