China’s Internet powerhouse Tencent’s revenue from PUBG Mobile and its new version, Game For Peace, spanned $4.8 million (roughly Rs. 33 crores) a day in May, becoming the worlds best grossing mobile app, according to a new report from mobile program intelligence firm Sensor Tower.
The 2 versions combined to create an estimated $146 million in player spending during the month of May, roughly 126 percent greater compared to nearly $65 million PUBG Mobile alone grossed in April, according to the quote which excluded Android earnings from China.
Of the entire revenue in May out of PUBG Mobile, Game For Peace, nearly $101 million came from Apple’s store, and $45.3 million in Google’s platform.
Added together, the earnings from both versions of PUBG Mobile earned roughly 17 percent greater than the almost $125 million produced by second-place Honor of Kings, also from Tencent, Randy Nelson, Head of Mobile Insights, Sensor Tower composed in a blog article, including that the quote excluded Android revenue from China.
“App Store and Google Play users worldwide spent an average of $4.8 million daily last month involving the two PUBG Mobile versions,” Nelson wrote.
“The primary rival to both of Tencent’s names, Fortnite from Epic Games, had its best month up to now from 2019 on iOS, but its whole player spending of $43.3 million was just about 43 percent of Game for Peace and PUBG Mobile’s combined demand for May,” Nelson stated.
