PUBG Mobile keeps breaking its own records

Tencent is the largest producer of video games. So over the past year, thanks to online games, the company was able to increase revenue by 29%. Such growth is due to the growth of paid subscriptions in China and the international market. Nevertheless, Tencent said that it intends to get half of its revenue from game sales outside of China.


The multiplayer shooter PUBG Mobile has become extremely popular and managed to win the hearts of millions of users since its release in 2018. And all thanks to the addictive gameplay, where several dozen real players fight against each other for first place. According to the latest data from Krafton's CEO, PUBG Mobile managed to become one of the best games in the world for mobile devices, giving way to Subway Surfers and Candy Crush Saga.


Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad gave his opinion on these huge numbers:

"PUBG Mobile was able to reach over 1 billion downloads, which shows that Battle Royale games can reach this scale on mobile platforms."
