PUBG Mobile has been booming and booming with more and more players joining the title as time goes by. PUBG by Bluehole is struggling to keep the player base up despite constant content updates by the developers. PUBG Mobile, on the other hand, is a different story. The title not only managed to scrape a ton of new players but also added esports tournaments which further glorifies the revenue.
As per a report by Sensor Tower, PUBG Mobile for the first time surpassed Fortnite on iOS with an estimated 166% increase from the week before. The numbers went from $4 million to a staggering $12 million in just a matter of days mostly due to PUBG content updates but also because of the Black Friday sales encouraging players to grab limited offers.
The revenue of PUBG Mobile averaged approximately $1.7 million in a day while Fortnite averaged at an estimated $1.2 million per day on iOS during the same period. The player base has certainly bumped up since the last time we estimated the revenues and if Tencent keeps on updating the content things will move on smoothly in the future. We expect Bluehole to take a note from the Mobile version and bring in quality change for the original title so that the lost player base actually returns back to the “broken” game.
