The Russian government is tossing around the idea of creating a fund to support developers of drone control simulators and other similar equipment. It is planned to allocate money for this through a separate fund, Kommersant learned.
Any “established game studio” could release such simulators in no time, market participants suggested, but they will not be popular with ordinary users, rather it is software to train people in the relevant specialties. Experts are confident that simulators can become part of training programs and real drone operators.
In February 2022, the Ministry of Digital Development was finalizing the business model of the Patriotic Fund for Video Game Support. Then, market sources reported that the fund would work in a similar way to the Film Fund of the Ministry of Culture, which co-finances the release of reimbursable films.
