PUBG Mobile has earned more than $1.5 billion according to Sensor Tower.

Asian dominance

Almost half of PUBG Mobile's revenue came from China through the App Store, after the game was rebranded by Tencent as Game for Peace.

Overall, the Chinese version has brought in 40 per cent of life time earnings.

Overall, 555 million people have downloaded PUBG Mobile - 116 million from India, amounting to 21 per cent of total downloads.

Unsurprisingly, China boasts the second-highest amount of installs with 108 million - 19 per cent.

The US accounted for eight per cent of total downloads, or rather 42 million. Google Play and the App Store are 334 million and 220 million installs respectively.
