In the first half of 2021 alone, consumers spent 1.7 billion per week on mobile games, up 40% from pre-pandemic levels. At the same time, recent legal decisions have paved the way for mobile game developers to direct users to other payment systems, opening up huge opportunities for developers to sell games, IAPs, or subscriptions directly to players.

Breaking the app store chains means that mobile game developers can reach their full global revenue potential, increase profit margins, and build stronger relationships with players. Plus, direct sales also give you direct access to valuable user behavior data, keeps more money in your pockets, and can even boost revenue by up to 40%.

In this VB Live event, learn how developers of any size can not only sell their content directly to players, but expand into regions where credit cards are not the primary method of payment, lower their overhead, and improve UA and discoverability vs. traditional distribution platforms, and more.
