Why Video Games Moving to Mobile is Great for Voice Over Artists
With the huge advance of smartphone technology it’s no wonder major gaming titles have found amazing success from using mobile platforms. Mobile phones now give users a gaming console that’s with them all the time. On a commute – play a game. On the loo at work – play a game.
Genshin Impact, for example had 85 million app downloads between September 2020 and May 2022. PUBG Mobile seems to be the most popular console/ pc game that turned to smartphones, with a total of 730 million downloads between February 2018 and June 2020.
Mobile also provides a lucrative opportunity for games that use in-app purchases. Genshin Impact made $100 million in its first 13 days as a mobile app. PUBG Mobile generated $5 billion as of March 2021 and it’s a free to play game.
So why’s this so great for voice over artists?
With mobile games proving so commercially successful and the added benefit of more people having a smartphone in their pocket than a gaming console at home, the demand for gaming content is expected to continue growing. More games, more characters, more voice-over. Happily many of our artists have been the much loved character voices in well known games like Chaos Gate: Demonhunters, Killer Frequency and Total War: Warhammer 3 and many others.
