Apex Legends Mobile from Electronic Arts was released on May 17, 2022 for Android and Apple devices. The Battle Royale game is the mobile version of the popular PC and console title Apex Legends, which was launched in February 2019. However, the mobile game lacks cross-platform support. The PC version of the game has built a dedicated fanbase over the past three years, but the mobile version hasn’t been able to garner a similar response.
Diablo Immortal, a multiplayer action role-playing game developed by Blizzard and NetEase, was launched on June 2, 2022. The game achieved great success in terms of downloads and revenue just a few weeks after its release. It generated $100 million in revenue eight weeks after its release.
Genshin Impact is an action role-playing game that has received a lot of attention. It was developed and published by miHoYo and was released on September 28, 2020 on multiple platforms including mobile, PC, and consoles. Genshin Impact also won the Best Mobile Game 2021 award.
Marvel Snap, a digital trading card game, was released by Nuverse and Second Dinner (developer) on October 18, 2022 for Windows, iOS, and Android. The game features over 150 Marvel characters.
Tower of Fantasy was first released in China last year in December and was developed by Hotta Studio, a subsidiary of Perfect World. The game was released worldwide in August 2022 by Level Infinite. So far, it has received a good response from RPG fans around the world.
Created by Geoff Keighley in 2014, the Game Awards recognize the achievements of the video game industry each year. In 2021, it generated over 85 million live streams worldwide. This year, the event will be streamed live on over 40 digital platforms, including YouTube, Twitch and Twitter.
