Infographic: Games M&A >$6B for 2014 if YouTube/Twitch completes

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.

If the reported Google/YouTube/Twitch deal completes at $1B, games acquirers would have consumed a record of >$6B acquisitions in 2014, as predicted in Digi-Capital’s Global Games Investment Review (www.digi-capital.com/reports). This compares strongly to $5.6B games M&A in full year 2013, which was the previous record. Games acquisitions in 2014 have been dominated by blockbuster deals such as Facebook/Oculus, Google/YouTube/Twitch (if it completes), Tencent/CJ Games and Zynga/Natural Motion. If the substantial games deal pipeline Digi-Capital is seeing globally continues, 2014 could set even higher records.

The shares of games M&A this year (if the deal completes) are in this nifty infographic.
