This roundtable will focus on three main challenges faced with a team that is moving a project from in development to live services. The challenges will be the following. How do you form, or reform, your team to work best in the live services environment? How do you keep your team aligned while working on a live game? How do you keep improving and iterating on your team while on a live game?

All Roundtable sessions are first come, first serve. Adding a Roundtable session to your schedule doesn't guarantee you a spot in the session.
