Video Gaming Trends and Stats in 2018 - #infographic

As we blast towards the middle of 2018, there are a few things already making waves this year. Professor Stephen Hawking passed away, we bombed Syria and Fortnite Battle Royale took the crown as the most successful game of the year so far. What do you mean you haven’t heard of it?

Fortnite is something completely new and exciting. Well, according to the majority of gamers out there, it certainly is. It’s a 100 player, free for all battle game, free to download (but believe us there are a LOT of in-app purchases) and in the first quarter of 2018, it’s made its way into the headlines as one of the most successful games ever.

Despite this, it hasn’t helped developers, Epic Games, make their way into the top revenue generating brands just yet, but that could all change. Whether you’re a player of Fortnite or not, one thing is for certain, we spend a whole lot of cash on maintaining our video game addiction.

Did you know that the leading games developer generated more than $12 Billion last year? That’s almost double their nearest competitor, and has seen Tencent tipped to be one of, if not THE, biggest business in the world by 2025. Most of that cash is being spent in the Asia Pacific region, although at $25 Billion, the US is putting in a very good show too.

It’s not all about the guys either, as women are proving themselves to be just as addicted to their games as anyone else. Why not a look at this infographic made by Filmora for more surprising game statistics for 2018 and see how much you really know about gaming.
