Call of Duty: Mobile, the new mobile game based on the expansive FPS franchise has had a rather explosive few months in terms of growth. Call of Duty: Mobile is basically a scaled down version of the newest game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Following in the footsteps of PUBG and Fortnite, the dev team wanted to create a fully portable variant of a modern military shooter, and this game was born. It offers many of the trappings and gameplay quirks of its full-sized cousins too. It even has controller support. In essence Call of Duty: Mobile is the ideal distillation of the console shooter onto mobile devices.
According to analyst firm Sensor Tower, their report estimates indicate that, over the course of its first two months, Call of Duty: Mobile has managed 172 million total downloads. The US accounts for about 15% of all installs, with 28.5 million installs. India came in second with 17.5 million installs, or 10.2%, and Brazil ranked third with 12 million installs, or 7%. The majority of users were on Google Play, with 89 million on that service. iOS devices contributed an estimated 83 million downloads.
The vast majority of these users hopped into the battle in that first week after launch, accounting for around 100 million installs. Still, according to reports, 20 million of those new users came in the last months, which is still incredible growth. That last month alone also accounted for $31 million of the game’s overall revenue accrued so far.
It’s unknown where Call of Duty: Mobile’s popularity will go in 2020. But it’s got such a massive playerbase, that it should continue to generate millions each month for quite a while.
