Gender Breakdown of Games Featured at E3 2018
For the fourth year in a row, we’ve made our data-gathering excursion into each of the major E3 press conferences to see if things are actually getting better in terms of female representation; to identify those areas in which we’re making progress, and those in which we’re just treading water. For purposes of this year’s study, […]
