  • 3 How developers can succeed in the mobile esports space

    Skillz Director of Developer Partnerships David Mok delivers an Esports Academy session at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019 on January 21st to 22nd.

    With mobile gaming now generating more revenue than PC and console combined, mobile has also become the most popular gaming platform in the world. Although eSports tournaments are now watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world, a disconnect still remains between competitive gaming and the everyday mobile gamer.

    This is largely due to the fact that eSports have historically been defined by the top 1% of PC and console players. The industry needs to be accessible to the other 99% of gamers, and mobile has enabled this market opportunity. In order to triumph in the mobile eSports space, developers need to understand market trends, player needs, and the challenges that lie ahead. The future of eSports is mobile, and knowing how to leverage eSports is crucial to game developers’ success in accessing the world’s 2.6 billion mobile gamers.
