"There's an amazing group of people creating these products from the coding side to the animators, it's just an amazing universe of talents, and that's exciting," says Schwartz. "We're seeing more female gamers getting involved – the platforms are all consoles, so you have PC games, you have mobile – so games are now everywhere and on all different devices.
