We’d like to introduce a couple of new faces who have joined the Ukie and Games London teams over the last couple of weeks.
In December the World Health Organisation signalled their intention to include "Gaming Disorder" as a serious health condition in their current draft of the International Classification of Diseases. Last updated in 1990, the eleventh edition of the manual is due to be published in Summer 2018. Ukie have been working hard behind the scenes alongside our international colleagues at ESA, ESA Canada, ISFE and IGEA to challenge this intention.
UPDATE: Ukie welcome the formation of a minority government led by the Conservative Party. It is essential that the government now focusses on delivering the right deal in the forthcoming Brexit negotiations and we look forward to working with them to achieve this.
What a night!
