US Tax Plan Could Harm Violent Game Creators

US Tax Plan Could Harm Violent Game Creators on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

A new proposed US tax plan could harm video game developers who create games that are deemed too violent.

A new tax reform plan released this week highlights a potential blow to those who create content that depict scenes of violence.

The bill, if passed, would prevent these studios from claiming tax credit to help aid research and development. The contents of the bill are still to be debated, and there's always the subjective nature of what is classed as "violent" and the element of free speech, but it could certainly become reality.

Thanks to C3 reader Anthony for the tip.

Do you think violent game makers should be excluded in this way?

I am not sure any games should get tax credit really. Not sure I get the logic to start with.
Probably one of these "other countrys get it so we have too as well else our industry moves away" things.
