How COVID-19 Influenced Gaming, According to FortuneZ
FortuneZ is a global business publication offering in-depth and reliable information to its readers who are mainly investors and businessmen. The publication covers updates on different financial markets like Forex, cryptocurrency, iGaming, eSports, and financial technology. Launched in 2000, FortuneZ has managed to stay true to its values of providing reliable and accurate information to its readers.
FortuneZ is one of the original publications catering to a large readership globally. To cater to the specific needs of the global business community, FortuneZ has introduced separate segments in its official website featuring updates on blockchains and crypto, Forex, market data, FinTech, gaming, and people. The segment on "Market" was launched in 2019 to offer an insight into the cryptocurrency market capitalization and cover traditional markets such as stocks, currencies, and commodities.
The publication has experienced a rise in the number of readerships during the pandemic-induced lockdown. It was quite expected as people staying at home were constantly seeking different ways to keep themselves occupied. According to FortuneZ, the popularity of online games, especially video games, has grown considerably. The restrictions on traveling due to the rise in COVID-19 cases are definitely a reason behind the increase in the number of new gamers.
"The gaming industry has seen massive growth after the COVID-19 lockdown." said Nadiia Osmokesku, editor of FortuneZ. Ms. Osmokesku was formerly journalist at other media publications - Forklog, and Blockspoint, and was the editor at Pushkinska.Osmokesku holds a Master degree in Journalism from Odessa National 'I.I. Mecnikov' University.
Many game developers and publishers have worked remotely to sustain the growing interest in gaming by releasing new updates as quickly as possible. According to FortuneZ, a negative impact on the industry was seen due to productivity issues and majorly because most trade events were either postponed or canceled which affected the relation between developers and publishers. Due to this, a few important upcoming projects and eSport leagues have been rescheduled.
Due to the complete shutdown of retail stores and peripheral manufacturing units, many activities like quality testing, rating, marketing, etc. have also suffered. Since transportation was banned due to the lockdown, suppliers faced a shortage of gaming hardware. While there were certainly a few negatives due to the COVID-19 lockdown, the positives far outweighed the negatives. With the rising number of online gamers, big brands like Microsoft and Sony found this the ideal time to launch their next-generation consoles - the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Both of them were launched towards the end of 2020.
FortuneZ has been serving its reader base with reliable information to help them make well-informed decisions. The media publication has been fully acquired by Herbert R. Sim aka The Bitcoin Man in November 2019. He is the founder of the first repository of blockchain and cryptocurrency called the Crypto Chain University. The repository, established in 2010 is used for compiling blockchain and cryptocurrency research papers. Herbert is the investor and advisor for FortuneZ. He had been leading the publication to reach new heights widening its exposure among businessmen and investors. FortuneZ aims to be one of the leading business publications globally covering important updates on financial markets around the world.
