The country’s gaming market has seen a surge in popularity, with a rising number of local game developers creating “culturally-relevant” and engaging content.

In other significant developments over the past year, Egypt’s Supreme Counsil for Media (SCM) blocked a news media website for sixth months on the grounds of press and media law violation.

The SCM issued a decision in October to Mada Masr news outlet to block the site for violating Articles 6 and 59 of the Media and

Press Law.

Separately, the SCM is preparing legislation that would require social media platforms to obtain a license to access mobile users in the country.
