With the mobile gaming market booming during the height of lockdowns all over the world, experts are saying that this industry is resilient of the coronavirus pandemic. Game publishers such as Nintendo (OTC:NTDOY), Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI), and Leaf Mobile (TSXV: LEAF) are topping the charts with record-breaking earnings.
As the world continues to battle with COVID-19, businesses continue to struggle to remain open and adjust to the new normal. However, this is not a problem for the gaming and e-sports industries, both of which have been thriving during the coronavirus pandemic, and have even experienced a surge in users and revenue. This is most likely due to people finding ways to keep themselves entertained during the lockdown, resulting to games like Call of Duty, Mario Kart Tour, and Leaf Mobile, Inc. (TSXV: LEAF)’s Cheech & Chong Bud Farm achieving record downloads.
