Screen Digest have predicted that in-game advertising will be worth over $1bn (£627m) by 2014, writes Media Week. The firm’s study, “In-Game Advertising: Market Assessment and Forecasts to 2014”, forecasts that the sector will grow to take 1.5% of all digital adspend, as advertisers understand the benefits.
