New research on game development costs

Develop magazine reports on new research that pegs per-game development costs at between $18 and $28 million. That’s for a multi-platform title: PC, Xbox, PS3. It’d be interesting to see the current costs/profits balance for a PC-only indie game. I’m guessing way below $1 million, and the cost to profits ratio potentially geared a lot higher on a niche hit.
