Keywords Studios employs over 8,500 people in 61 studios across the world.
The Dublin-based gaming company creates, adapts, and supports some of the biggest video games in the world like Halo, Assassin’s Creed, and Fortnite.
CEO Andrew Day, who bought Keywords Studios with 50 staff in 2009, says that his company is heading into a period of exponential growth at a time when the industry, in general, is growing as more people are at home.
Day told Sonya Lennon, host of The Architects of Business, made in partnership with EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™, about their projected figures;
“From where I sit today I don’t think there’s anything going to hold us back, other than ourselves, in getting to be about a $1billion in revenue in about five years’ time.
I think we’re quite close on a run-rate basis, or we will be exiting this year at around $500million, I hope.”
He goes onto talk about the company’s meteoric stock market valuation which recently passed a gigantic milestone having floated at $75million in 2013.
