With this industry growing as fast as ever and making waves that seem almost unstoppable, what are some trends to watch for in the second half of 2021? Let’s take a look.

Esports Are not Just A Console Thing, Make Room For Mobile Gaming

When video gaming and sports fanatics think of Esports, they usually think about getting down with a good gaming session either on their favourite video gaming consoles like a PS 5 or Xbox or a top brand gaming computer. With today’s world being a couple of apps away from being almost run completely by cell phones or tablets, the Esports industry has, of course, seen this as their next big move to establish themselves as the top entertainment source in the mobile world apart from social media.

Today’s mobile devices are as powerful and user friendly as they have ever been, and they’re always on a constant upgrading mission to become better and better. Some of the biggest titles in the Esports industry like Call of Duty, League of Legends and others are already fan favourites in the mobile gaming industry. With the continuous rise of the industry and the trends never stopping to amaze left and right, the next step is for there to be mobile Esports tournaments, just like the regular Esports league tournaments that have become one of the most popular sporting entertainment events in the world. Some of the world’s top Esports organizations and teams have already branched into the consolidation of mobile teams to compete in the up and coming leagues to be able to make a name for themselves even further but now on a mobile scale.

Esports Are A Mainstream Staple Now, Which Means More Revenue

While before the idea of being a professional video game player was taken more like an opium dream for the tech fans than any other thing, being a pro-Esports gamer is a thing now, and it’s a high paying job too. When Esports first started gaining popularity, revenue for athletes and teams were generated based on their tournament wins. But now, with the industry-changing and becoming a slow but steady growing giant in the mainstream world, many Esports organizations have found that getting creative with their sourcing of revenue is now easier than before.
