21 Jun, 2019
Even though mobile gaming has a ways to go before it's just like playing on a desktop or console, it's inching closer every year - and it might grow in leaps and bounds in 2020.
At E3 2019, the sources talked to publishers, game developers and phonemakers about their products and projects to get a hint at what's coming for mobile gaming in 2020.
