Video game deals have taken a nosedive over the past 12 months, with the total value of all deals - that's investments, mergers and acquisitions, and IPOs - dropping below $5 billion in 2015. An 81 percent drop on the previous year.
Those figures come from tech-advisor Digi-Capital's latest report, which explains that, in contrast, the value of game deals in 2014 was over $25 billion.
Looking at the specifics, the report shows that video game investment fell by 30 percent, the value of M&As dropped by 75 percent, and the games IPO market was at its lowest level for a decade.
Although it looks bad, it's worth noting that Activision's $5.9 billion acquisition of Candy Crush creator, King, wasn't counted as that deal technically hasn't closed yet.
Focusing on the $1.1 billion worth of video game investments that were recorded; mobile, console, PC, and other game related tech took the lion's share of the cash, with AR/VR titles and MMO/MOBAs sharing what was left.
