Well I mean, I believe something like computer science would help. But I think publishers and development studios mainly look for good experience. I'm completely new to game development and I don't have the money to be a full time student. But I'm developing a few very small, but professionally made and presentable games in my spare time to create a portfolio. That should be a good start to getting hired somewhere

You also may want to consider revising your question to be a bit more specific. Do you know what kind of work you want to do? Coding? Animation? Design? There's a LOT that goes into game development. I would recommend researching different career paths in the game industry first.
