Moreover, the popular MOBA title by Tencent takes second place in the highest-grossing mobile game list. It has collected a revenue of $256.2 million.
PUBG Mobile becomes the highest-grossing mobile game for two consecutive months
PUBG Mobile was the highest-grossing mobile game of July 2021, with a revenue of $300 million. Moreover, it has maintained its top position on the list for one more month.
Besides, around 61.4 per cent of overall revenue collected in August come from Game for Peace, the Chinese version of PUBG Mobile. The United States of America contributed around 9 per cent of overall revenue, whereas Turkey contributed around 6.5 per cent.
As PUBG Mobile has changed its Royale Pass system to renew every month, there is a high probability that PUBG Mobile will also top the list in the coming months.
Five top-grossing mobile games of August 2022
PUBG Mobile led the chart with a revenue of around $270 million. On the other hand, the MOBA game by Tencent, Honor of Kings, was the second highest-grossing mobile game of August 2021, with around $256.2 million in revenue.
Genshin Impact by MiHoYo was ranked at three in the list, followed by Fate/Grand Order and Pokémon Go, respectively.
Sensor Tower reports only include the revenue from Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. It does not include the revenue from any third-party stores. However, Google is banned in China, and Android users use third-party stores to download and spend money on all games. Hence, the actual earnings for all these games should be higher.
For the past two years, PUBG Mobile has been consistent in revenue collection. However, we expect the numbers to go much higher in the coming months.
