Official Video Games Industry Taxonomy

NPD develops Video Games Industry Taxonomy

Enormous Tree Chart

David McQuillan, president of games at The NPD Group, explained, “Establishing unified definitions will benefit industry stakeholders since a common framework helps to facilitate clear conversations among retailers, publishers, developers, the financial community and the media as digital distribution has increased the complexity of industry business models.”

“Feedback on the Taxonomy is welcome and encouraged in order to make sure that it is as current as possible and addresses the entire video games industry as accurately as possible.”
