It’s crucial to remember that Sensor Tower only takes into account earnings from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. When generating the report, revenue from any third-party app stores is not taken into account. Users also make purchases through alternative app stores since China does not have access to the Google Play Store. Therefore, the highest earning mobile game in June 2022 and real revenue may differ.
