Newzoo, a well-known market research company, released the latest news that in 2022, the revenue of game markets around the world will decline for the first time, with a decline rate of about 4.3%, to 184.4 billion dollars. However, there are still some games that have achieved good results.
Tencent’s Honor of Kings once again topped the list. After breaking through US $1 billion for the first time in 2017, its income only declined slightly in 2018, with an annual income of US $1.04 billion. Since then, the income of “Honor of Kings” has been rising every year, reaching US $1.15 billion in 2019, US $1.5 billion in 2020 and US $1.76 billion in 2021. In 2022, Honor of Kings created a record breaking revenue of $2.2 billion, an increase of $460 million year on year. With the holding of the “Honor of Kings” World Championships and other e-sports events, as well as the overseas testing and launching of “Honor of Kings”, its business performance is naturally more eye-catching.
The second place is also from Tencent’s PUBG Mobile. In 2022, according to statistics, the global revenue will be about 1.73 billion dollars, including about 1.27 billion dollars in China and about 460 million dollars abroad. However, 2022 has been the weakest year for PUBG Mobile since 2019, mainly due to the impact of Indian sanctions, Krafton’s competition with IP products and other factors.
Genshin Impact has become the top three games in the past year due to its good business performance. This game has a good growth momentum, from 407 million dollars at the end of 2020 to 1.26 billion dollars in 2021, and then to 1.56 billion dollars in 2022. Thirdly, Chinese players have made great contributions to Genshin Impact. In 2022, the revenue of iOS version alone will reach 719 million dollars, accounting for nearly half of the total revenue.
Candy Crush Saga is the leading player of Match 3 Game, and will continue to perform strongly in 2022, obtaining 168 million downloads, and maintaining a year-on-year growth trend in revenue. In 2022, the annual revenue of the game will reach 1.03 billion dollars, which is the first time that the annual revenue exceeds 1 billion dollars.
However, the fifth ranked revenue decreased by about $100 million in 2022 to reach $862 million. Of course, this is closely related to the weakening of the epidemic dividend. After all, Roblox’s annual revenue was only $364 million before 2019. The same is true of Coin Master. Compared with $9.66 billion in 2021, the revenue of the game in 2022 decreased by $146 million to only $820 million.
In addition to the games mentioned above, there are still many games to pay attention to. Royal Match, which has been ranking first in the US market for many years, failed to rank among the top 20, ranking 21st with an income of less than $428 million. NetEase’s Diablo: Immortal was launched in 2022 for only six months, but it still received $343 million in revenue. As King’s second largest game, Candy Crush Soda Saga will earn $287 million in 2022, while the third game, Farm Heroes Saga, will earn only $72 million.
The development trend of the gaming industry also shows that using cloud game services is a wise choice for players. Implemented through ARMVM technology, the redfinger cloud phone is like another virtual smartphone android, which has various advantages over other products. As a virtual Android system, redfinger hardly needs data, storage and battery power of the device. By using this platform, users can freely run games on the cloud 24 hours a day, 7 hours a day, and meet the needs of multi task processing to improve the role level.
In addition, some of the games mentioned above are available in the redfinger cloud phone. For example, on June 2, Diablo series launched the free video game Diablo Immortal. The game was developed by Blizzard Entertainment and NetEase and is mainly designed for mobile phones.
Under the background of the auto pick function embedded in Diablo Immortal, players can switch in the custom menu and pick up when the auto runs. Of course, this feature allows players to save time doing other things. Coincidentally, players can play Diablo Immortal with redfinger cloud phone to save the storage space of the phone. The features of Diablo Immortal and redfinger bring more convenience to enjoy the game.
