I posted about it other threads, and I thought it would be cool to do a (non-exhaustive) look at the survey question "which platform(s) are you developing your current project for?" in GDC surveys through the years. Graph of a few selected platforms. Mobile question was changed between 2020 and 2021 to split into iOS and Android choices. Survey sample is 4,000+ developers.

  • Steady PC growth
  • VR declined, then stabilized
  • Mobile interest decreasing
  • Switch largely unchanged between 2019 and present
  • Extreme persistence of eight generation consoles
  • Total support of ninth generation consoles reaching heights above eight generation.
I look forward to either finding other interesting questions that were asked persistently, or updating this in a year.

May want to, just for the sake of posterity, do the same chart for the question on developer intent.
