Women in the UK games industry earn more than their male counterparts according to a market survey.

The survery, counducted by MCV, has found that women earn roughly £2000 more per year than men, and that they are more optimistic about their career prospects, too.

MCV polled 528 industry professionals, and although women made up only 10% of that number, the survey clearly shows that there is an incentive for more talented woman to join the industry.

Nicola Bhalerao, a software engineer at Microsoft studio Rare, and head of the Women in Games Conference, echoed this sentiment, saying, "This is fantastic news. Hopefully it will help attract more women to make great quality games."
