QuestMobile recently released the China Mobile Internet Annual Report 2021 showing the attraction of MOBA and FPS games.
The report indicates that as the Chinese authorities tighten the number of game versions in 2021, major IP game products have also decreased in release.
According to statistics, in 2021, MOBA and shooting (FPS) are still the game genres that occupy the main time of users. However, both are down compared to the same period last year, in which the aircraft shooting game has a lower percentage of playtime.
In 2021, the SLG mobile game genre shows its emphasis on product quantity and quality. The launch of some SLG boutique mobile games like Civilization and Conquest brought gamers excitement.
According to statistics, the number of mobile game users in their 30s has decreased, while the number of users over the age of 30 has increased. It is worth mentioning that under the influence of the Protection of Minors Regulations, many minors will use the identity of their elders to log in to the game in order to bypass regulatory restrictions.
According to reported statistics, among the 10 mobile games most played by users every month in 2021, Tencent Games accounted for a total of 7 games.
Of these, two games Honor of Kings have more than 100 million monthly active users. Mobile game League of Legends and Golden Shovel Battle ranked in the top 1 and 2 respectively. The report shows that 68.3% of League of Legends game players come from Glorious Kings.
In terms of year-on-year growth, some games have fallen, with the monthly activity of the two biggest shooter mobile games falling like Crossfire Legends.
Harry Potter Magic Awakening is adapted from a classic IP, with more than 20 years plus social gameplay and rich storyline, attracting a large number of female and middle aged players.
For a long time, mobile shooters have been considered difficult to operate, with limited hardware characteristics, so such games need to continue to optimize the experience and increase innovation on mobile devices.
