The bad news is those companies are the giants titans from IT and adverting industry, so yes, it will affects almost all developers that are using global monetization as a business model.
GDPR is mainly focused on "Cookies consent" and CCPA has "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" as a choice in the interaction with the user.
