It would be fair to say that all three games are hugely popular, with a dedicated fan base. Recently, Supercell's Clash Royale broke $3 billion in lifetime revenue and is closing in on 500 million downloads.
Meanwhile, Brawl Stars, a second Supercell game, has also seen a good amount of success since its release in December 2018. As of June 2020, the multiplayer mobile shooter has generated $675.4 million and racked up 204.3 million installs.
Finally, Tencent's PUBG Mobile has been a huge hit on the platform and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon as it hit $3 billion in lifetime revenue in July, doubling its earnings in just seven months. Moreover, the battle royale title has been installed 600 million times as of March 2020.
