Genre consistency

Across the 19 games highlighted by, RPGs marked the most represented genre with a total of five games reaching $1 billion. These five titles are Arknights, Lineage W, Marvel Strike Force, Odin Valhalla Rising and One Piece Treasure Cruise. While the total is down from six last year, they showcase the RPG genre’s sustained popularity and the dedication of its fans.

Strategy games were the second-biggest group with four games, mirroring last year's performance.

2017 was the only year pre-pandemic to see more than 10 titles hit $1 billion. Since 2020, with consumer spending rising during the peak of the lockdowns, the number of mobile games achieving $1 billion has reached new heights, verging on 20+ every year.

The lowest pandemic year was 2021, and even then a total of 18 mobile games reached the milestone.

More games surpassing the $1 billion mark is also reflective of the long-term support that mobile titles receive through live ops.
