Tencent's mobile version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds just had its best week yet in terms of revenue. PUBG Mobile players spent a record $14 million in the game last week, driven by the launch of its fifth Royale Pass season on January 18. This was more than double the preceding week's estimated $6.7 million haul worldwide across both the App Store and Google Play, and almost 10 percent more than its previous best week of November 19, 2018, when it took in $12.8 million, according to Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data.
In addition to marking its highest-earning seven day period, PUBG Mobile revenue also had its best day ever last Saturday, January 19, when it saw player spending top $3.8 million globally—with the exception of China, were it is still prevented from monetizing. This was 58 percent more than players spent on the game's previous single best day of revenue, November 23, 2018, when PUBG Mobile grossed $2.4 million following the launch of Royale Pass Season 4.
To date, PUBG Mobile has grossed more than $206 million from in-app spending and has been installed by more than 300 million players globally on the App Store and Google Play.
