According to a new report, the games industry is expected to be worth more than $100 billion in the next three years, with mobile gaming a major driving force.

Digi-Capital’s new Global Games Industry Review reports that mobile and online gaming may account for up to 60% of the industry’s revenue in 2017. Much of the growth, in those sectors and in general, is likely to come from Asia.

The Review also indicates that the beginning of the next generation of games consoles has helped that sector of the market recover after a few slower years.

Thanks, Games Industry.
