ONLINE GAMING: Here’s What Gamers Can Expect In 2021

The advent of online gaming in India began in the early 2000s especially when gaming on the computer was a major hit. Now, there has been a transition from playing games on PC to mobile phones, tablets, etc.

Gaming is considered one of the most lucrative and sustainable businesses in the country now. In the financial year 2020, India recorded about 365 million online gamers while in 2019, it was only 300 million online gamers. The top three games that launched in 2020 were Garena Free Fire: New Beginning, Call Of Duty: Mobile, and Coin Master.

As compared to the global market, an average Indian gamer is a male, below 24-years-old and is introduced to games by his friends, family, etc. The preferences of the games are also broader as compared to that of the global market as Indians prefer Puzzle, Action, and Adventure games.

What can one expect in 2021:

  • The emergence of local brands or International gaming brands could possibly modify the game according to the preferences of the Indian population.
  • Age and gender equality in the online gaming industry.
  • Online games offering more opportunities across business functions and other sectors.
  • More premium games in the market which would help create more gaming companies.

One can look forward to these top three games in 2021, namely, Halo Infinite, Far Cry 6, Gotham Knights, and several more games. And no player can leave behind the hopes of seeing PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (PUBG) back in India again.

In this financial year, the Indian online gaming industry is expected to grow at a rapid rate and is expected to have 436 million online gamers by 2021. This ecosystem of gamers is going to grow bigger and give better opportunities for game developers, designers, streamers, investors, and several others.

This potential growth makes India one of the top gaming markets in the world. Indian gamers can gain a strong foothold within the global digital industry. To read more such articles, keep reading GutshotMagazine.com. Follow us on FacebookInstagram, and Telegram.
