IGDA and IGDAF Response to Recent Tragedies in Dayton, OH and El Paso, TX

Joint Statement from the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) and International Game Developers Association Foundation (IGDAF)

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 4, 2019 – Our deepest condolences and hearts go out to the victims and families affected by the tragic events in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. Society has endured too many senseless acts of violence and horrific mass shootings. Blaming video games distracts from the broader issues at hand. There is an overwhelming amount of research that finds there is no evidence linking video games to violence. Video games do not cause violence, and we support efforts to discontinue this misguided information.

– Executive Directors, Renee Gittins (IGDA) and Nika Nour (IGDAF)
