Console/PC gaming to earn more than mobile in 2015
According to a recent report from SuperData Research, console and PC gaming combined are estimated to make more than mobile gaming in 2015.
This comes after a year in which Clash of Clans alone made roughly $1.8B, with Puzzles and Dragons and Candy Crush Saga also making $1.5B and and $1B respectively.
The total global gaming market is slated to earn roughly $74.2B in 2015, with mobile gaming accounting for $22.3B, and retail/PC/digital console games accounting for $30.3B.

The report also states that "the industry’s gravity point has shifted from physical to digital media," a very visible trend over the past few years, particularly since the launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
From this data, it would certainly appear that the gaming market as a whole is booming, with many kinds of games contributing to the rapid expansion.
