Will mobile gaming be the future of gaming? It certainly looks as though this is the case. Mobile gaming is gaining immense popularity because it can be played anywhere and at any time. They also give the player an intense gaming experience that immerses them in the mobile game. As a result, mobile gaming will replace desktop gaming at an unprecedented level. Just give it a few years. After all, smartphones are constantly evolving and are improving in the technologies and devices needed for better, smarter, and more intense gaming experiences. 

The mobile gaming industry is lucrative.  According to Nielsen’s SuperData Research, mobile games brought in $64.4 billion in revenue in 2019 alone. That was almost  60%  of the revenue of the entire gaming industry! 

Big tech companies are noticing. That’s why giants like Google and Microsoft are working to increase the power and number of mobile games that they make. Other companies are following in their footsteps. Smartphone gaming is becoming so popular so quickly that it promises to transform the entire gaming industry, its protocols, and rules in a short time.

The Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMCA) is an independent organization representing the interests of mobile network operators worldwide. It projects that  89% of Indonesians and 78% of Indians  will be using smartphones by 2025.


  1. Expect better graphics and controls

    All it will take is for more established players to enter the industry. Then mobile developers will put a lot of research and development money and effort into developing newer generations of devices that are much more efficient and much more powerful than the earlier models of smartphones. In addition, expect them to improve the graphics and overall performance to offer gamers the best mobile gaming experiences. 

    The newer generation of smartphones and other mobile devices will have more storage capacity and longer-lasting batteries. This will accommodate the needs of those who wish to play games while offline for several hours. Expect to see collaboration from mobile game developers to develop responsive games. Many controls and features may either disappear or merge to provide an interrupted view of the game. This will make for a better gaming experience. 

    Some people are not interested in syncing devices and games. That’s why gaming and mobile device developers concentrate on designing games where everything will fit on a very small mobile device screen. Quality in terms of games matters because the competition is fierce.

  2. 5G will drive real-time multiplayer gaming

    Telecoms companies are working night and day to bring 5G technologies to the world. This will have a profound impact on gaming, and especially on multiplayer gaming. Indeed, 5G will take multiplayer gaming to a whole new level’ in terms of speed and longer battery power. They say that 5G is approximately ten times faster than 4G. This is crucial to multiplayer gaming. 

    Mobile internet speed will increase dramatically, and congestion will decrease. 5G comes with lower latency, and this will allow batteries to stay charged for much longer. Loading games that need the Internet to operate will occur at the speed of light (literally!).

    There is a huge spike in demand for real-time multiplayer games. These include dealer casinos and multi-gaming tournaments. Fast-speed Internet is crucial because it can play a key role in determining who will win and lose these games.

    Mobile companies are recognizing the power of 5G. They are using its lower latency to create apps that run seamlessly. For example, Apple announced in 2019 that it would make its chipsets in-house via Intel’s modem business. The objective was to support 5G. This will improve the quality and size of Smartphone gaming.


  3. AR/VR will gradually be accepted.

    People know about AR and VR. Many even find these to be fascinating. That said, neither has taken off in popularity. True, Pokemon GO ran off these technologies, but that didn’t result in a large-scale usage of AR/VR. One of the reasons for this is that developers find it hard to integrate AR/VR into gaming and especially mobile gaming.

    One major challenge is the high price. Samsung partnered with Oculus in 2015. The objective was to create the smartphone-empowered Gear VR for $99. Google and LG followed suit with similar products. However, not much in either progress or development has been seen in this area since then. 

    Developers are not developing new AR/VR technologies for gaming. One of the reasons for this is because there is no real audience for these technologies. The current headsets are bulky and not powerful enough to support the new technologies anyway. Only time will tell if this will change!  


Mobile gaming will grow in popularity in the future. It may soon be the dominant form of gaming. Both genders enjoy playing mobile games in equal numbers and percentages. Mobile games are played on apps on mobile devices, and that’s why they’re becoming more popular. Developers are noticing and are developing newer generations of games that are superior and more diverse. They’re also improving mobile games to play well on newer devices with more advanced technology.
