Dave Rohrl, Juan Gril and Steve Meretzky continue their long-running and popular annual analysis of the free-to-play (F2P) games space, across all genres and platforms. The space is beginning to mature and consolidate like the console space of the 1990s, with more iteration and fewer new breakouts at the top of the charts. In response, developers have continued to evolve existing genres and create new best practices. Come hear about key success factors and important new developments in popular F2P genres, and learn what this evolution means for you.


Audience members will learn about the key design trends driving the latest developments in top free-to-play genres on a variety of platforms.
