810 mobile games made more than $1 million and 7 of them generated over $100 million from consumer spending every month in the first half of 2021, according to App Annie’s new 2021 Mobile Gaming Tear Down report. 

Players spent over $1.7 billion in mobile games across Play Store and App Store every week in H1. This is up 40% compared to the pre-pandemic period.

App Annie forecasts that mobile games will surpass $120 billion in consumer spend by the end of this year while home console games are expected to generate only $39 billion.
