Gameloft and Vivendi Brand Marketing Unveil Report on Gamers and Their Expectations from Brands

Gameloftfor brands, leader in gaming experiences for brands, and Vivendi Brand Marketing, are proud to announce the launch of their new report 'Gamers & Brands'. While debunking some myths about gamers, the study shows what gamers expect from brands, and how organisations can create meaningful connections with this influential audience.

'Gamers & Brands' draws on findings from three studies involving over 80,000 gamers, 1,800 brands, and in collaboration with Vivendi businesses. Among the key insights are:

- One in two consumers worldwide play video games at least once a month, one in four every day. More than half of the gaming population is over 36

- Women now account for more than half of the gamers’ community

- Gamers are consumer activists: 58% of gamers say they prefer to buy from brands with a purpose other than just profits (51% for Non-gamers)

- Gamers have expectations from brands: 44% of the content provided by brands is not meaningful to them

The report clearly shows that gamers are consumers with specific expectations that companies have to navigate, demanding them to be socially responsible and to provide helpful, inspiring or rewarding content. Leveraging 20 years of gaming expertise, Gameloft works with thousands of organisations to help them better engage with their customers by creating gaming experiences that deliver on those expectations. Alongside the report, Gameloft unveils Gameloft for brands, a new identity for its brand advertising activity that reinforces the company’s commitment to empowering brands with gamified solutions to reconnect with their audiences, overcome attention challenges and drive results.

“The 'Gamers & Brands' report gives powerful insights on what players expect from brands, and demonstrates the value of our mission,” said Alexandre Tan, VP of brand partnerships and advertising at Gameloft. “We unveil this study at the same time as we unify all our services behind a clear brand that is an expression of our strategy and of what we want to bring to clients. Our new visual identity and name highlight how we make our business evolve. During the past few months, we have seen more and more people turn to gaming, whether to relax, learn, have fun or keep in touch with friends, proving our strategy as a company to be more relevant than ever.”

Underlining the robust opportunities for brands to engage with gamers, Maria Garrido, SVP brand marketing at Vivendi, explains: “Gamers have a more positive and engaging relationship than the general population with brands – 56% say they trust companies and brands. As this cohort is more connected to popular culture, there is a tremendous opportunity for brands to engage gamers, both within the gaming space and as influencers, to carry the brand message to a larger audience.
