Mobile Gaming growth

Newzoo, a company specialized in games analytical processing, announced: “Gamers worldwide will generate a total of $99.6 billion in revenues in 2016, up 8.5% compared to 2015. For the first time, mobile gaming will take a larger share than PC with $36.9 billion, up 21.3% globally.”

The importance of collecting data

In the same way, videogames on consoles and PCs are more and more connected, enriching the gaming experience while players can communicate in a same universe. Frank Gibeau, Zynga CEO, former EA Games Vice President, confirms it “Single player, 25-hours-and you’re out. I think that model is finished. Online is where the innovation, and the action, is at.”
