Market Updates*

  • Mobile gaming continues to dominate industry revenues and provide the most growth by segment (compared to PC and console).High demand for next-gen console sales into 2021 should provide an overall favorable backdrop for the video game industry.
  • M&A activity from tech conglomerates may continue as these companies look to position themselves favorably in the gaming landscape. They have been purchasing development studios and esports-related businesses to boost their offerings.
  • We currently see “return to normalcy” risks and valuation risks for video game companies, but we believe supportive long-term trends are still in place around consumer demand for interactive digital entertainment, cord-cutting and demographics.
