Call of Duty Mobile smashes records with 100M downloads in 1st week

Call of Duty: Mobile has been downloaded 100 million times since its release October 1, outranking the mobile launches of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, industry analyst firm Sensor Tower confirmed to CNET on Tuesday. The likes of PUBG and Fortnite have peaked while games such as EA's Apex Legends are rising on non-mobile platforms.

The smash hit is a "first-person-shooter game" that allows gamers to portray elite soldiers hunting down targets in different parts of the world.

Like many popular mobile games, "Call of Duty Mobile" earns money through microtransactions. Using it will open a briefcase computer and call down the nuke, but it's worth clarifying that this doesn't end the game. While COD Mobile might be easier than a mainstream Call of Duty game, getting 20 kills in a row without dying is still no mean feat. With a yearly release schedule, "Call of Duty" is one of the best-selling video game franchise of all time, and its successful launch on mobile is a reflection of the game's massive global community. Sensor Tower said the numbers reflected worldwide unique downloads across Apple's App Store and Google Play in the period since.

Call of Duty: Mobile has reached 100 million downloads in its first week, surpassing Mario Kart Tour, Pokemon GO, and both mobile versions of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to become the largest mobile game launch in history. Tencent's in China still about to start the game.
