Tencent maintains a firm grasp on SuperData’s top 10 grossing mobile games chart in August

Tencent holds a tight reign over SuperData’s monthly top-grossing mobile games chart.

The market research firm’s monthly top 10 has kept relatively static for the last two months, with Tencent’s mobile MOBA Honor of Kings holding down the number one spot.

The flagship handheld MOBA has consistently placed first for months and was recently estimated to have passed over $3.5 billion in worldwide revenue. 96 per cent of that figure is said to come from the game’s Chinese audience.

Despite Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga trading places in July, the chart as shown below has remained as-is for two months.

Firm grasp

Tencent also holds second place with mobile racer QQ Speed, strengthening its position as a power player within the mobile market.

Additionally, Tencent-owned developer Supercell has two entries - with Clash Royale at sixth and Clash of Clans taking ninth.

Asian games dominate the chart, with six games in the top 10. NetEase bags two spaces thanks to the continued success of Knives Out and Fantasy Westward Journey.

The top 10 highest-grossing games in August 2018 were:

  1. Honor of Kings (Arena of Valor)
  2. QQ Speed
  3. Pokemon Go
  4. Knives Out
  5. Fantasy Westward Journey
  6. Clash Royale
  7. Fate/Grand Order
  8. Monster Strike
  9. Clash of Clans
  10. Candy Crush Saga
