Call of Duty and PUBG
The topmost liked and played Chinese mobile game is Call of Duty; a combo of Tencent and Activision. Moreover, Tencent’s Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is also amongst the top played mobile games in the US. However, other smaller Chinese gaming studios are successfully making grounds in the US mobile gaming market.
Mihoyo’s Genshin Impact was the sixth highest-grossing mobile game in the US during Q4. It racked up over $100 million in the US in Q4 alone. Moreover, Magic Tavern’s Project Makeover is another such example as it was the most installed game in the US last year.
