Prior to its release in China, Call of Duty: Mobile had people going crazy. Lots of FPS and especially Call of Duty lovers waited for the game over a year and it broke records in its first week. As the madness keeps getting big, numbers from almost every statistical data blow our minds. According to Craig Chapple and a Call of Duty leaker on Twitter, the game earned $14M from in-game expenses in a week. On a chart of the “Top Grossing Mobile Games in China Between Dec. 25 and 31 2020,” Call of Duty: Mobile took fourth place.
As shown in the picture above, Honor of Kings is a real deal in China. The game holds the majority of the financial share in the ecosystem and almost tripled its closest follower. Call of Duty: Mobile follows Honor of Kings, PUBG Mobile and Fantasy Westward Journey with a total of $14M. While examining the chart, you have to keep in mind that Call of Duty: Mobile reached this level in its first week.
Players can buy too much cool stuff in-game. Activision’s store policy makes the game more colorful and joyful. According to SensorTower, as of December 31, Call of Duty: Mobile has reached close to $644 million and it looks like that total will keep getting higher.
Due to China’s regulation laws, Activision made an agreement with Tencent to keep the Call of Duty spirit alive in China. The Chinese version includes cool stuff that the global version lacks. This chart shows how much the game will improve and probably surpass PUBG Mobile in a very short amount of time.
