PUBG Mobile hits $9B in lifetime consumer spending

Dec 07

The amount that people have spent on PUBG Mobile has gone over $9 billion, which is a new milestone. Sensor Tower says that people have downloaded PUBG Mobile from the App Store and Google Play 1.1 billion times and spent an average of $5.2 million per day.

In March 2018, PUBG Mobile came out, just a year after the PC beta version came out on Steam. PUBG Mobile did well because it was the first big PC battle royale game to come to the platform. About two weeks after that, Fortnite came out on iOS. Fortnite is no longer on the App Store, of course. This probably helped the game that was published by Tencent, Krafton, and Level Infinite. Battle royale games that work well on mobile, like Free Fire, are still a strong threat.

But the recent drop in the market for mobile games hurt PUBG Mobile. During the first three quarters of 2022, 104.4 million people downloaded PUBG Mobile, and they spent a total of $1.6 billion on it. Sensor Tower says that both of these numbers (142 million and $2.2 billion) fell by about 27% compared to the same time in 2021.

BattleGrounds Mobile India (BGMI), the version of PUBG Mobile that is only available in India, is not part of Sensor Tower's analysis. This is likely because different government bans have stopped the app from growing, which is why you can't download it right now. In India, BGMI was very popular. Just before the app was banned, 100 million people had signed up to use it.

I personally never spend money on any mobile games so my contribution to this number is zero
