Welcome to the latest edition of our What's Next Trend Report! With over 3T views of gaming-related content in 2022 alone1, TikTok is the global destination for gaming culture. In this report, we unpack how gaming culture is evolving on our platform and explore what that means for brands that want to resonate with our diverse community of gamers.

The Trend Forces reshaping gaming culture on TikTok

Our report focuses on how gaming represents the future of entertainment based on the three main themes we outlined in our original What's Next 2023 Trend Report. Gaming culture on TikTok is captivating audiences by directly addressing key user expectations for Actionable Entertainment, Making Space for Joy, and Community-Built Ideals. Each of these Trend Forces has significant implications for how gaming publishers and non-gaming brands interested in engaging the community should show up on the platform to entertain gamers and inspire action.

We partnered with TikTok creator and cozy gaming enthusiast Kennedy Rose (@cozy.games) to get her perspective on the key takeaways from the What's Next: Gaming Trend Report.
