Open call of the Creative Europe program to finance the development of video games and immersive content

For the first time in almost two years, teams and studios working on the development of video games and other immersive content can apply for funding from a total fund of 6,000,000 euros.

The goal of the support is to increase the capacity of European video game producers, XR studios and audiovisual production companies to develop video games and interactive immersive experiences that have the potential to reach players around the world. The support also aims to improve the competitiveness of the European video game industry and other companies producing interactive content in the European and international market by enabling teams and studios to keep their IP in their possession.

Support serves the development of interactive narrative storytelling titles and prototypes with original content and/or quality video games ready for publishing and global sales for all platforms and technologies.

Preference is given to projects with a high level of originality and innovative and creative value. Special attention will be paid to applications that present adequate strategies to ensure a more sustainable, more environmentally friendly industry and to ensure gender balance, inclusion, diversity and visibility.

The deadline for applications is April 12, 2022, but it is advisable to start preparing the application as soon as possible. All information on the conditions and how to apply can be found in the official call document.
