Keywords Studios, which provides technical services to the global video games industry, has announced a 65% increase in full-year adjusted pre-tax profits to €37.9m on revenues 66% higher at €251m. Chief executive Andrew Day says the “phenomenally successful” free-to-play game Fortnite, which attracted 200 million players during the year, disrupted some games supported by Keywords. This led some clients to reduce their spending, terminate games or cease trading, but he believes the market is “more settled now,” with Fortnite and other new games having become an “integral part of it”. Keywords also now undertakes a “considerable amount of work” on Fortnite.
