The UK's Video Games Tax Relief initiative reached new milestones last year as the number of projects receiving final certification and spending on those projects rose to record highs.
UK spend on games that received final certification was reported as £582.6 million according to the BFI, via UKIE. That's a 189% increase on the £201.9 million reported in 2018.
The number of games that received final certification increased to 247 -- the highest number for a single year to date.
However, the amount of titles that received interim certification lowered last year, dropping from 174 to 139. This has been attributed to the late stage in the console cycle as games companies focus on preparing for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
UKIE also reports that overall product budgets have risen, quadrupling to £1.16 billion, and the related proportion in UK expenditure dropped from 76.5% to 50.2%.
"This indicates that development work in the UK is an integral part of multinational projects that may otherwise have been made elsewhere," the trade body said.
