Evolving technology and new channels help more game developers make money
The Fortnite phenomenon has captured the attention of the gaming community and exemplifies many of the changes that have occurred over the past 18 months in the industry. Gaming has become much more social, and watching expert gamers execute perfect moves can be just as much fun as playing them. This creates a new channel for developers to promote their games and new ways to generate revenues. Fortnite first gained popularity when rock star streamer Ninja and rapper Drake streamed their game-play on Twitch. This shift is influencing revenue models and opportunities for developers. The trend is also helping to shift development to the web.
