There are two take aways from this article:
1. It pays to be a game developer
2. It pays more to be a mobile game developer

The Sunday Times has published its yearly Rich List, revealing the wealth of several games industry big wigs including Candy Crush dev King’s founders and Rockstar’s Sam and Dan Houser.

The Rich List is published annually, and counts down Britain’s 1,000 wealthiest individuals. In news that may surprise some people, despite churning out a string of successful titles for over a decade, the Housers’ combined wealth is significantly below that of key players involved with Candy Crush Saga developer King.
