Developing a video game and launching it in the market is a costly task by every sense of the word. It takes a significant amount of investment, not just of cash but also of time and determination. The bigger the game is, the more time consuming it will be. However, it is all worth it in the end because of the masterpiece of a result that is produced. An exemplary game is Red Dead Redemption 2, which went into pre-production six years before it was released.
Creating a video game requires patience and hardworking capabilities, and a single person cannot achieve all the work. There are hundreds of workers working on that project to reach its end goal. There are different roles taken by different people to build that project. These roles are divided into teams, and each team has a specific milestone they need to achieve within the deadline.In the early times, many video games were developed by a single person who took on the role of programmer, designer, writer, and all the other job roles in the video game themselves. However, with the current generation of gaming, the complexity of developing a game has increased substantially because modern graphics, textures, and even storytelling need to be on point to make a video game a success.
There are a lot of different roles that are taken up by people in the development of a video game whether it is a programmer who develops the code or an animator, from a game designer to a writer and music composer, all play an integral role in the creation of a single video game.
