Future of game development with AI NPCs

In 2023, we published the Future of NPC report – a survey which examined how gamers feel about AI NPCs. Players told us clearly that they wanted AI NPCs with 99% believing they would improve gameplay and 81% saying they would pay extra for games with AI NPCs.
