PUBG Mobile got 2020’s highest mobile game revenue with $2.6 billion global earnings


Despite getting caught in the crossfire between India and China, PUBG Mobile still managed to earn the top spot in earnings among mobile games in 2020, having reached $2.6 billion worldwide.

Per SensorTower, Tencent’s battle royale game for smartphones got $2.6 billion when combined with its Chinese localized counterpart Game for Peace. That’s a 64.3-percent year-on-year increase from 2019, and $1 billion more since PUBG Mobile was first reported as the top earner in September 2020.

Not far behind is another Tencent game, the battle arena Honor of Kings, with $2.5 billion earnings in 2020. Pokémon Go placed third with $1.2 billion. Two more games have earned more than $1 billion, Coin Master and Roblox.

The global health issue is attributed as a major factor in the massive boost in earnings by mobile games. In 2018 and 2019, only three mobile titles made billion-dollar earnings. From 2014 to 2017, only two games reached the same milestone per year.
