- Monitor Market Trends: Keep an eye on the slowing growth of Battle Royale games and the potential rise of Extraction Shooters. Tencent’s Arena Breakout could be a game-changer.
- Assess Market Fragmentation: The FPS/TPS/Tactical Shooter market is highly fragmented, with no single game claiming more than 10% of downloads. This could present opportunities for new entrants.
- Understand Revenue Trends: Despite the high download numbers, PvE Shooting games are experiencing a decline in revenue. This could be due to poor retention and lower monetization.
- Stay Informed on New Developments: The introduction of cross-progression in games like Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile could be a new paradigm in the gaming industry. Monitor how this impacts player engagement and revenue.
