PUBG Mobile is dominating monthly player spending in battle royale games, with a gigantic spike that started in March and hasn't stopped rising. Fortnite is down in that same time, and doesn't even come close to the numbers from PUBG Mobile.
The big difference here for PUBG Mobile is when it reached China two months ago when it was released as Game for Peace, with monthly player spending going from just over $60 million in April to over $160 million in July. Fortnite on the other hand slipped under $40 million per month.
- PUBG Mobile: $860 million
- Knives Out: $771 million
- Fortnite: $725 million
So when people laugh at these gaming phones like the Razer Phone II and ASUS ROG Phone II... tell them just how huge mobile gaming is and how much money is involved. We're looking at over $2 billion in monthly revenue from just three battle royale games on mobile devices, in a single year. This is just three games out of the sea of mobile games, but they push the boundaries of mobile hardware.
