GDC 2017 survey: PC remains the most popular platform, 53% of game creators developing for it

According to GDC 2017’s survey, the PC platform is the most popular one. The survey conducted from the views of over 4,5000 video game developers who have attended GDC over the past 3 years and according to the results, 53% of the survey-takers are currently developing for the PC platform.

This further proves how popular the PC platform actually is, as more and more developers are releasing their games on it.

In addition, GDC 2017’s survey revealed that 61% of the surveyed developers are not currently developing VR titles, but among those who are, 24 percent are currently making games on HTC and Valve’s Vive headset, 23 percent are supporting Oculus Rift, and 13 percent are supporting Sony’s PlayStation VR.

For what it’s worth, GDC 2017 will take place February 27th-March 3rd, alongside the 2017 Virtual Reality Developers Conference (VRDC) February 27-28, both at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
