The Mobile Gaming Takeover
While the gaming market spotlight is focused on new consoles and games this holiday season, the bigger focus for insiders continues to be the mobile sector.
Over the last 20 years, mobile gaming has gone from the industry’s entertaining afterthought to its largest source of revenue—in 2020, the sector is estimated to have generated around $85 billion.
In light of COVID-19 keeping many consumers at home, gaming companies like Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard have reported higher year-over-year revenues and greater market penetration than ever before.
Why QA is required?
Overall, QA testing for mobile games is about user experience. Bugs, glitches, and inefficiency all ruin the experience of playing your game. Plus, with so many games out on the market, it’s easy for players to drop your game and turn to something similar. You need to capture people the moment they download the app by creating a great user experience at the onset. After all, players will not wait for a new update to fix current problems. You need to catch problems before you launch your app, and the only way to do this is through QA testing.
