As the COVID-19 pandemic continued, social games were going to boom.
The pandemic that broke out in 2019 has changed the lives of people across the globe. The unpredictable variants and lockdowns have deepened the anxiety of people, resulting in their increased demand for online social services. Some social activities that were very popular offline have been brought online.
With high-budget/high-quality mobile games in general, cross-platform play became the new growth point.
More and more gamers have known the charm of high-quality games through live streams and short videos, resulting in a rising overall expectation for games and a surging demand for high-quality game content.
