Mobile eSports shooter Critical Ops surpasses 30 million downloads worldwide

Critical Force's eSports shooter Critical Ops has now surpassed 30 million downloads 26 months after it was first soft-launched.

It surpassed 25 million downloads in August 2017, meaning it has accrued 5 million downloads in around three months. Critical Force still says that the game has not officially been released yet.

As well as surpassing this milestone, the developer has brought former Kabam CEO Kevin Chou onto its board. Chou is now the CEO of eSports organisation Korean Silicon Valley eSports.

Always growing

"We are very pleased to have Kevin to join our board, and we look forward to his contributions," said Veli-Pekka Piirainen, CEO and Founder at Critical Force.

"Kevin is a real veteran and a leader in the game industry worldwide. He led Kabam from founding to a billion-dollar company and his experience as an entrepreneur, business leader and now as a founder and CEO of KSV Esports will be invaluable to Critical Force."

Critical Force has been slowly growing Critical Ops over the last two years, and has even opened an office in South Korea to help break into the Asia market. The game was scheduled to be part of Amazon's recent Mobile Masters tournament, but was pulled at the last minute due to a mass shooting in Las Vegas.
