In this category, you will see the revival of games like Final Fantasy and Crash Bandicoot.

The future will see games crafted with some creativity and customization options.

This enhancement is a feature which will be cherished by several people considering that it is highly appealing in observing how your own input can make your gaming moment to be yours uniquely.

There will be different kinds of updates coming. Initial updates were just used to correct bugs. However, developers are now going out of their ways to introduce expansions which are more epic. This updates will be meant to offer the highest replay values besides enriching the gaming experience. This will attract new players and retain old players considering that it is based upon the creation of a strong demand and desire among the gamers who have a craving for some engrossing experience.

The role of playing together will be strengthened. We will see some continued trend with games which are based on IP. We are projecting an increase in the number of genres considering that developers come from different backgrounds. Their experiences are what influence what they come up with. Besides the diversity which will satisfy customers from different niches, it will increase competition which is an important element for development.

To sum up, mobile gaming is set to undergo some considerable revolution. There are several variables to exploit in this market. As a gamer, I am still waiting for a mobile game which will penetrate the eSport market. Though I have seen some figments of this experience with Clash Royale, it hasn’t really managed to lay down a benchmark of the working mechanisms of eSports on mobile devices.
