Video games are an important part of the lives of many users, And we no longer only consume them through our console or our computer, but we also do it from our mobile or tablet. And indeed, mobile games have come a long way in recent years.
The good thing that we have increasingly powerful devices is that developers have more facilities to get good games to our terminals. Fortnite has been one of the last big releases we've had on Android, and now, the CEO of Epic Games has claimed that smartphones are the future of the video game industry.
Epic Games is committed to multiplatform games and not to segment
Tim Sweeney, the CEO and co-founder of Epic Games, the company responsible for Fortnite, has defended in an interview that he has given to Business Insider some of the ideas that, according to him, have made Fortnite a real success.
The first of those ideas is the multiplatform, that does not put limits on which users face –or cooperate– with our friends in online games, despite the fact that they play from totally different platforms. Although, it must be said, by default, mobile players play against their peers, due to the disadvantages they have at the gameplay level.
However, for Tim Sweeney, there are no more mobile players and console players, but simply players, and rejects the idea of dividing games by platforms, depriving mobile users of more complicated games at the playability level, such as, in fact, Fortnite.
Now, the company is focused on reinvesting the profits that Fortnite reports to grow even more and be able to offer its users the best possible games, in fact, Epic Games have also announced a program to fund new projects
