The overall industry, while having a presence in all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, is highly concentrated in a handful of states. More than 42% (over 44,000 jobs) are located across the state of California. Washington, Texas, New York and Florida round out the top five states, with these five states accounting for approximately 72% of the industry’s employment. An increasingly important factor reflected by the U.S. video game industry is the increased use of hybrid (those workers with a specific office location that can work one or more days a week at home) and remote workers (those workers working from home or elsewhere without a defined corporate office). In 2023, these remote workers accounted for 18,000 jobs or 17% of total U.S. industry employment.
