Ever since its release in February 2018, PUBG has established its sole dominance in the mobile gaming world, only to be challenged by Call of Duty: Mobile version.
Apparently, Call of Duty has broken PUBG’s record by reaching 100 million downloads in the first week of its release itself.
According to Randy Nelson, head of mobile insights at Sensor Tower:
“This is by far the largest mobile game launch in history in terms of the player base that’s been built in the first week.”
Call Of Duty: Mobile is developed by Tencent and was launched by Activision Blizzard Inc. on October 1 and the 100 million download mark is achieved by Apple’s App Store and Google Play together.
FYI, PUBG is also developed by the same developer.
According to Hindustan Times, the next console edition of Call of Duty: Mobile will be launched on 25th October.
The company announced that it would cut 800 jobs stating 2019 as a year of transition, and invest in the development of its game franchises including COD, Candy Crush, Warcraft and Overwatch.
