Maybe you’re waiting on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for this holiday season. Perhaps you’re still playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4? If you’re somewhere in the middle, bored of Black Ops 4, but impatient for the next Modern Warfare, you could be playing the other Call of Duty that just launched. In fact, you’d be joining about 100 million other players.
According to SensorTower, a mobile analytics firm, Call of Duty Mobile (launched on October 1st) surpassed 100 million downloads in its first week of availability. Apple owners accounted for a whopping 56.9 million unique installs, with Android players racking up another 45.3 million. To put that into perspective, Fortnite and PUBG had mobile launch week downloads of 22.5 million and 28 million, respectively. Call of Duty Mobile also generated more revenue in its first week than either title.
The most amazing part of all this success? It hasn’t even launched in China yet. Activision and Tencent have applied, but are waiting for approvals to release it in the Chinese market. Considering the curent dust-up over Blizzard’s snafu with a pro-Hong Kong Hearthstone player, maybe going slow is for the best.
