You don’t need a formal qualification to become a game designer. However, as with many technical roles involving some aspect of programming, computer science or digital design, there are increasing numbers of entry-level candidates coming into roles with a bachelor’s degree. Look into options for online professional certifications for game design-related skills to boost your chances of landing a role.
