But, if they really were to somehow fade out, it'd probably be by choice, and even then, it would probably to move on to other things, dependent upon their success.
Like retirement at 30.
Indeed. They're so inexpensive (sometimes even made by only one person) that there will always be someone out there trying to make the next Angry Birds or Jetpack Joyride or Temple Run.

And there will probably always be the huge companies making huge games like Gears of War and Call of Duty.

It's everybody in between that'll feel the sting.
