Immersive & Gaming salary expectations

The majority of professionals in the Immersive and Gaming industry expect at least a 15% salary increase when moving to a new role, which for a Junior-Mid level professional may not be that much, but for a Senior or Director level professional, this would likely be a considerable amount.
