Move over, consoles: strategy games have a new home on mobile XCOM 2: War of the Chosen on iPad

Fans of strategy games used to have to play on PC; console ports rarely fared well, with the limited control of a joystick compared to a mouse making it hard to complete even the simplest of tasks in such a game. However that’s starting to change, as strategy games are starting to find a new home: mobile devices.

XCOM 2, the popular strategy sequel from 2016, is now available on iOS devices, thanks to Feral Interactive porting it over along with all its expansions. But this move, exciting as it is, is symbolic of a bigger change for games: developers are seemingly starting to realize the popularity, and potential, of mobile gaming.
