Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phill Schiller said that the App Store winners represent a diverse group of both large and small developers. "We congratulate all the winners and thank them for making 2019 the best year yet for the App Store". Whereas last year it was "Battle Royale-style gaming", recognising the popularity of Fortnite and rise of similar titles, this year it's "Blockbusters reimagined" - seemingly to highlight how many established games franchises had new outings on iOS this year. Apps such as Anchor, Canva, Spark Camera, and Wattpad. Apple does have a fair point on that and cited examples of games like Call of Duty Mobile, Minecraft Earth, Assassin's Creed Rebellion.
