With fewer and fewer companies making bigger and bigger games, and with many of those same companies laying off hundreds or simply folding up, it's clear that it's more than business as usual for the video game industry in 2019.

What does veteran game developer Amy Hennig (Crystal Dynamics, Naughty Dog, Visceral), think is going on...and can it be fixed?

What can the video game industry learn from their colleagues in movies and television?

And how can specialization of labor be the answer to the industry's problems (while also being their cause)?
