    A lot/most of the input from the games industry to this story in the mainstream press has been from either the bigger game companies or from organisations such as TIGA. So typically the prime concerns are access to talent, R&D, funding etc.
    From the point of view of a small developer like myself, there are a lot of other factors which are likely to contribute to a further brain drain from the UK. We’re already being impacted by inflation caused by Brexit, especially when it comes to the imported tech we need to do our jobs. Post Brexit, we could be looking at food shortages or hyper inflation, reduction of workers rights and all manner of basic ‘niceties’ we’ve got used to as EU citizens.
    So while there’s a risk for the bigger companies, the small devs and the individuals currently working for the large companies have even more direct issues worrying them about the Brexit scenarios.

    I think there will also be many British people working for video game developers outside of the UK, in EU countries, who may be affected.
