Mobile Gaming Revenue Predicted to Reach $100 Billion This Year

Mobile gaming revenue is predicted to reach $100 billion this year. That is a jump from $86 billion spent in 2019.

The figure comes in a report by data and analytics provider App Annie.

The analysis builds on trends that focus on increased spending for gaming apps with iOS and Android. It also factors in 5G technology and subscription services such as Google Play Pass.

Globally, mobile gaming is now the most popular form of entertainment. Last year, its revenue was 25 percent more than other forms of gaming entertainment.

Popular games in 2019 included Nintendo’s ‘Mario Kart Tour’ and Activision Blizzard’s ‘Call of Duty Mobile.’

Puzzle games were also very popular, pulling in over 21 percent of downloads last year. Worldwide, arcade games accounted for 47 percent.
