Hardcore gamers know all about the metagame — the optimal gameplay strategy that boosts a player’s or team’s odds of winning. It’s the game of games. Business works the same way. There’s always an optimal strategy, but the metagame — or meta, for short — changes over time.
Master the Meta is focused on the business of video games, a massive and perpetually underestimated industry. Our goal is to analyze recent events and help readers keep up with the changing meta of all things gaming.
Readers will gain strategic insights into the world of publishers, platforms, esports, hardware sellers, game engine providers, and more. Whether you’re an industry executive or a casual observer, all are welcome.
