Online Gaming sees surge across the UK

After both Xbox Live and Nintendo Online both collapsed under the strain of increased traffic across their networks, the UK’s online gaming market is braced for a massive surge in use.

The UK gaming market is expected to see a similar pattern to what happened in China, where the Financial Times reported a huge spike in app downloads.

Online game app downloads saw a spike of over 40% across China

The online gaming industry is worth an expected $150 billion, with large parts of Europe in complete lockdown this is expected to increase.

Steam – the most popular PC platform for downloading games reported their highest ever concurrent visitor numbers with over 20 million online at one point.

Predictions from companies such as AppAnnie see an increase in online productivity apps such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom. However they expect the surge in games to now follow China where the downloads of the most popular titles are expected to provide a boost to the gaming economy
