PUBG Mobile might be a free game to download, but it is still managing to rake in lots of money. According to a report by Sensor Tower, the game was the top grossing mobile game worldwide in July 2020. The research firm notes that the game generated $208.8 million in user spending, which represented a 10.8 percent growth from July 2019. However, Sensor Tower also noted that a majority of the revenue (56.6%) was from the Chinese localization of the game called Game for Peace. The US and Saudi Arabia were its second and third biggest markets with a 10% and 5.6% respectively,
It should be noted that while the game was the top grossing mobile game overall, Sensor Tower notes wasn’t the top grossing game in either the app stores. In the Apple App store, the game was placed second, behind Honor of Kings, which is another game published by Tencent. It was placed ninth in the Google Play Store.
Interestingly, Sensor Tower’s report shows that Pokemon Go is still going strong even four years after its initial release. The game had the third and fourth highest revenue on the Play Store and App Store respectively for the month of July, leading to a fourth highest revenue overall.
It should be noted that PUBG Mobile may be leading in overall revenue, Garena Free Fire had higher earnings than it on the Google Play Store. Further Call of Duty: Mobile was nowhere on the list. However, that might change by next year as the game is fast gaining popularity. According to a previous report by Sensor Tower, the game crossed 250 million downloads in 265 days since launch. By comparison, PUBG Mobile had 236 million downloads in the same time frame.
