2020 was a big year for video game growth.
In fact, with the pandemic keeping millions of people at home last year, video game spending in the U.S. totaled $56.9 billion for 2020. However, 2021 could be even better. This year, the industry could see global revenue of $189.3 billion, says Newzoo, adding there could be 2.8 billion gamers worldwide in 2021. Just look at February video game sales to see how explosive gaming has become. “New data from The NPD Group found that sales of games, hardware and accessories hit a record $4.6 billion in February, up 35% from $3.4 billion in the previous-year period,” as reported by Media Play News.
