Player Unknown’s Battleground (PUBG) has ruled the mobile gaming world since its release in February 2018. The game made many records including the record for highest revenue earning mobile game.
However, Call of Duty Mobile is set to break the records with over 100 million downloads from different app stores.
According to a new report, Call of Duty Mobile had the biggest launch of any mobile game on Android and iOS, ever.
It’s now estimated that COD Mobile has been downloaded over 100 million times from App Stores in its first week, dwarfing many other game launches.
Sensor Tower reports that neither Fortnite or PUBG Mobile went past 30 Million downloads over the same period.
“During its first week, Call of Duty Mobile brought in $17.7 million in player spending, putting its average gross revenue per download at around $0.17,” Sensor Tower confirms.

“The U.S. was by far the title’s biggest revenue generator, with players in the country spending $7.6 million, or 43.1 percent of its overall gross.
“Japan was the second highest-grossing country with $2.4 million, or 13.7 percent, while Brazil came in third with $848,000, or 4.8 percent.
“Call of Duty Mobile also outshone rivals Fortnite and PUBG Mobile for first-week gross revenue. During its first seven days in beta, Epic Games’ battle royale hit generated around $2.3 million from the App Store.
“PUBG Mobile did not start monetizing until two months after launch, at which point it generated just under $600,000 in the first week of adding spending options.”
According to Hidustan Times, Activision, which will launch the next console edition of COD on October 25, has labelled this year as a transition year. The company said that it would cut 800 jobs and invest in the development of its game franchises including COD, Candy Crush, Warcraft and Overwatch.
