The MOBA game by Tencent, Honor of Kings, led the chart with a revenue of around $329 million. On the other hand, the battle royale game by Tencent, PUBG Mobile, was the second highest-grossing mobile game of October 2021, with around $197 million in revenue. 

Candy Crush by King ranked third in the list, whereas Garena Free Fire ranked fourth on the list. Moreover, a reasonably new MOBA game by Riot Games, League of Legends, ranked fifth on the list.

It is important to note that Sensor Tower reports only include the revenue from Apple’s App Store and Google Play Store. And it does not include the revenue from any third-party stores. Moreover, Google Play Store is banned in China, and all Android users use third-party app stores to download and spend money on all the games. Hence, the actual earnings for all these games may be higher than the report.

For the past couple of years, Honor of Kings has been showing consistent performance on the highest grossing mobile game list. Moreover, the game is gaining a lot of popularity in China and Taiwan.
