Enterprise Seattle is launching a Web site today to promote the region’s booming video game industry.
The site, washingtoninteractivenetwork.org, is primarily an economic development tool intended to help attract companies and talent. But it also includes tools for those already here, including a calendar of industry events.
It’s an extension of Enterprise Seattle’s research last year into the games business, which found 150 companies in the region that created 15,000 jobs and generated $5 billion in sales.
The economic development group’s going to announce the site today during a luncheon where executives from local game companies, including Microsoft and Sony, will discuss the state of the industry.
