Since its release in October 2019, Call of Duty: Mobile has been downloaded over 250 million times.
This was revealed via a report by Sensor Tower, which says it is the most popular game in the U.S., where it has been downloaded 45 million times. India is second as the most installed while Brazil occupies the third position.
According to the report, this is more than the downloads for PUBG Mobile and Fortnite in the first 265 days of their release. PUBG Mobile, under the same day, was downloaded 236 million times, while Fortnite experienced 78 million installs.
The game also surpassed PUBG Mobile in terms of revenue by a huge margin. The report states that CoD: Mobile earned about $327 million since its release- which is about 78 percent more than what PUBG Mobile made during the same period. It is believed that this is the case because PUBG Mobile is more popular in southern and Southeast Asian regions. Players spend less in-game here.
With data on Fortnite’s earnings through Android unavailable because it wasn’t released in the Google Play Store, CoD: Mobile earned about 83 percent of what players spent in Fortnite on mobile in revenue.
Activision in a partnership with Tencent’s Timi Studios developed CoD: Mobile, and it was finally released globally on Oct. 1.
On mobile gaming, gamers could be expecting to have Apex Legends on their smartphones very soon.
The information was gotten from a leaked video from Electronic Arts’ “fireside chat.” The CEO of the company, Andrew Wilson, was heard talking about the mobile market.
It was confirmed that the game would be coming out to mobile during EA’s Q2 earnings call in 2019. EA’s CFO and COO, Blake Jorgensen had in October 2019 said Apex Legends Mobile would be released in the 2021 fiscal year—the 2021 fiscal year will begin on Oct. 1, 2020.
