It was estimated that mobile gaming generated over $90 billion in 2021 and is continuing to increase at over 5% every year. Based on this figure, the mobile gaming industry generated more revenue than the movie and music industries combined in 2021, which is incredible. According to a report by Adjust, 21% of Android and 25% of iOS apps downloaded are games. Continue below as we look at some of the mobile gaming trends for 2022.

More AAA Games

AAA or Triple-A games refer to games that have been developed using significant amounts of money. These mobile games are usually produced by big studios. Asphalt 9: Legends, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, and Batman: The Telltale Series are examples of popular AAA games. Besides mobile AAA games, incredible casino games also continue to be released on online casinos that can be played on mobile. Nowadays, real money mobile slots, live blackjack, and all sorts of casino games are provided to operators by world-class casino game providers. Most online casinos offer these games to be played on mobile and at the highest quality, in terms of speed, experience, and quality graphics. Mobile gaming, whether for AAA games or incredible casino games, seems to be growing tremendously, in terms of budget for games, their quality, and the variety to choose from. We will continue to see this boom in 2022, and beyond. 

Social Features

Social features have taken off in recent years with games like Fortnite, PUBG Mobile, and Clash of Clans being good examples of this. We expect to see more social features included in new mobile games in 2022 as people want to interact with others when playing games on their mobile devices. It is already understood that multiplayer mode is key to social mobile gaming, but including a live chat is also important. Collaboration could be the way forward for mobile gaming developers in 2022, providing gamers with ways to team up, share items, replays, and experiences.

Blockchain Gaming

Thanks to the Blockchain, crypto-based games are also available on our smartphones today. Blockchain-based mobile games are not controlled by the developer but by a centrally controlled server, with the value of assets being determined by cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). With more people than ever before choosing to invest in crypto and NFTs, we are going to see a rise in mobile games using them. In-game purchases can be made using cryptocurrency and NFTs can also be traded or sold in these games. 

Cross-Play Integration

Thanks to the introduction of cross-play integration, friends can play multiplayer games without having to all be using one common platform. This is going to be massive in 2022 and in the years to come because with the technology in place, video game developers can make the same game available as a multiplayer experience across mobile, PC, Xbox, and PlayStation

Cloud Gaming

Some of the latest mobile games are intensive, both in terms of graphics and gameplay. That means they will not always run smoothly on even the latest mobile devices. Cloud gaming runs games on remote servers, meaning the game does not have to be installed on a mobile phone to play. The server does all the demanding work and this means improved games will be available on mobile as cloud gaming becomes a major feature of mobile gaming in 2022.


As the latest mobile devices continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in a handset, mobile gaming is only going to increase in popularity throughout 2022. With cloud gaming and blockchain gaming gradually being introduced, the improvement of social features in games, and the increase of cross-platform games and AAA games, there are several mobile trends to look out for in 2022.
