| | Comments (0)
Game Developer magazine has released the results of its 2007 game developer salary survey.
According to the survey, the average developer is earning an annual salary of $73,600 – just above last year's average of $73,316.

  • Artists earned an average of $66,594
  • Business and Marketing staff averaged $101,848
  • Producers averaged $78,716
  • Programmers earned an average of $83,383
  • Quality Assurance averaged $39,063 (although experienced Q/A leads can earn nearly twice that
  • Sound designers averaged $73,409
Interestingly, only around 50% of game developers have a bachelor's degree. FI suspects this reflects the recent nature of the industry, and doesn't think that number would hold true for new entrants into the industry.
