3 U.S. Gaming Brands to Watch in 2024

The U.S. gaming industry is a constantly evolving beast. With new trends, technologies, and players emerging each year, it’s no surprise that Statista believes the U.S. gaming industry will grow to a market value of $103.8 billion by the end of 2027, posting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.99% between 2024 and 2027.

America’s gaming scene is being turbocharged by a string of gaming development studios, offering innovative experiences and driving growth across the video gaming and iGaming markets. Below, we’ll investigate three of the leading U.S. gaming brands to keep an eye on this year and beyond.

Electronic Arts (EA)

EA is a titan in the video gaming industry. Renowned for blockbuster franchises like Madden NFL, FIFA, and Battlefield. With a focus on high-quality gameplay, immersive gaming environments, and cutting-edge graphics, EA has captured the hearts and minds of gamers for well over a generation.

In 2024, the company continues to dominate the sports gaming landscape, thanks largely to its annual releases of FIFA and Madden NFL, attracting millions of players eager to experience the latest updates and features. Its expansion into live services and Esports has been hugely successful. Titles like FIFA Ultimate Team and Apex Legends have thrived on the concept of ongoing content updates, events, and competitive tournaments. All of which has fostered a vibrant community of gamers and Esports spectators.

The studio has also made clever acquisitions through the years to enhance its in-house expertise. In 2021, it acquired Codemasters, further diversifying its portfolio and cementing its position in the racing sim genre.

Virtual Gaming Worlds (VGW)

VGW is a rising star in the world of social gaming. Known for its flagship platform, Chumba Casino, this site has established itself as one of the leading free online casinos. Unlike traditional iGaming operators, social casinos like Chumba operate on a sweepstakes model, allowing users to win real cash prizes through virtual currency gameplay.

This unique approach has garnered attention and accolades, propelling VGW to the forefront of the global social gaming scene. VGW’s portfolio includes other social gaming platforms such as LuckyLand Slots and Global Poker. Both of which offer unique gaming experiences and opportunities to connect with others in virtual gaming environments.

With a steadfast commitment to responsible gaming practices and regulatory compliance, VGW is well-placed to become a trusted leader in the burgeoning social casino space.

Riot Games

Riot Games is best known for its flagship title, League of Legends (LoL). It’s been synonymous with Esports and competitive gaming. Founded in 2006, the company has grown exponentially, propelled by the global success of LoL and its thriving Esports ecosystem. In addition to LoL, Riot Games has expanded its portfolio with new titles like Valorant, a tactical first-person shooter that has quickly gained popularity among players and Esports enthusiasts.

The studio hosts international tournaments like the LoL World Championship, attracting millions of viewers and cementing LoL’s status as one of the most-watched Esports globally. Ambitious gaming projects like LoL: Wild Rift, a mobile adaptation of the iconic MOBA game, have also positioned Riot Games at the front and center of the casual mobile gaming boom.

This trio of gaming giants are clearly primed for innovation and taking the global gaming industry to even greater heights in the coming years.
