Will Huawei enter the gaming industry?
A few days ago, the official account of Huawei HarmonyOS developers announced that the HarmonyOS Application Service Partner Summit will be held in Hangzhou on July 30, and the HarmonyOS Developer Day is also scheduled to be held in Hangzhou on July 31. However, the speech session has a new title that is arousing our curiosity. There is a session for “The HarmonyOS card game you never think of”. This seems to imply that Huawei will launch a HarmonyOS card game.
As a result, netizens are now asking if Huawei wants to enter the gaming industry. According to reports, in April this year, some netizens discovered that Huawei was recruiting for gaming positions. The positions include game planning and game production. Judging from the recruitment information, Huawei has the intention of entering the game industry.
In addition, some analysts claim that a high-quality game may deepen users’ stickiness to Huawei’s software and hardware ecology. The purpose of Huawei’s self-developed game may also be to verify the possibility of “distributed games” based on the HarmonyOS system.
