To have an idea about location of the largest studios in the world, I’ve pointed them on the map

To understand, which skills are required there, I looked at 20 of these studios and 150 vacancies. Here is a list of the most important skills:

  • In the 150 vacancies of 150 selected required С++
  • 49 Mathematics (vectors, matrices and linear algebra)
  • 33 C#
  • 27 Multiplayer
  • 21 OOD
  • 19 Muthreading
  • 19 PS3
  • 18 XBOX360
  • 15 Memory management
  • 14 SQL
  • 12 AI
  • 12 Optimisation
  • 11 DirectX 11
  • 10 Animation
  • 9 OpenGL
  • 8 Debugging
  • 7 Physics programming (PhysX, Havok)

There are mixed requirements for animators, programmers etc., but the overall picture should be clear. The most important skills is C++ and mathematics
