PUBG Mobile currently has a whopping 30 million daily active users and has hit a good 200 million downloads. This was stated by Tencent during a statement. This number specified by Tencent excludes China and only highlights the popularity of PUBG Mobile across the world. The game has a huge player base in India as well as other markets outside India. The most important factor in boosting the popularity of PUBG is the fact that PUBG Mobile can run smoothly on a low-end Android device as well. However, the 200 million downloads number doesn’t give an accurate picture of how many people play the game. The daily active users is a metric which can be used to gauge PUBG Mobile’s popularity.
Fortnite’s user base is also huge in some markets but on mobile, the game lags behind PUBG. In spite of this, Fortnite has managed to hit 200 million registered players and continues to move ahead of Epic Games. While Fortnite and PUBG Mobile are very popular, it is also worth considering the fact that PUBG Mobile has exceeded Fortnite’s revenue on iOS in recent times. This was reported by taking into consideration data from Sensor Tower.
PUBG Mobile (being on Android and iOS) dominates Asia and China and this was reported by Sensor Tower. It also stated that the US makes up only 30 percent of PUBG’s revenue. PUBG Mobile on Android is extremely popular in the markets where there aren’t many PCs or consoles, such as India. Many people in India use Android devices as their primary computing device and this factor adds to the game’s popularity.
PUBG Mobile has been busy adding new features to the game on both Android and iOS platforms. It is also a known fact that PUBG is great to be played on mobile as well as on PC and consoles. The Royale Pass, PUBG Mobile’s take on Fortnite Battle Pass, and seasonal events have all been made available on PUBG Mobile. Fortnite, on the other hand, hasn’t been well optimized across devices.
