Unless you’ve lived under a rock this past year, you know that mobile gaming is growing exponentially. One can confidently say that the mobile gaming industry is going from strength to strength, be it the number of gamers or the variety of games available. According to a report by KPMG, India’s gaming industry will hit the 118.8 billion mark by 2023. While the growth projections bring joy to many, there are still some myths that hound the mobile gaming arena in the country. Let’s take a look at what they are.
This is just a myth, as the current situation is quite the opposite. Some feel that gamers lock themselves up to play their heart out. This certainly does not happen. Gamers have nurtured a robust community of like-minded people. Multi-player games have Gen Z and Gen X bonding with family and friends while smashing game records together. It’s challenging to place the aspect of isolation here.
Is it too hard to believe that mobile gaming can be a career option and hence a source of income? It shouldn’t be that hard. Mobile gaming tournaments have jaw-dropping prize pools. Teams and players who clinch top titles have lucrative prize money to grab. The recently concluded Esports Premier League (ESPL) 2021 offered a massive prize pool of ₹25 Lakh. The winning team—Mumbai Marshals, won a whopping ₹12 Lakh in prize money. Now, that’s some cool cash to win.

Well, we have listed down some mobile gaming myths, which should clear the air for you. Recent news reports have painted an aspirational picture of the mobile gaming industry, and we hope to see this vertical flourish. Debunking myths of mobile gaming is crucial as this industry is showing no signs of slowing down.
