The so-called “PUBG killer”, Call of Duty Mobile, has launched and is off to a terrific start. The popular blockbuster’s mobile version had already hit 3 million installs within its first day of launch, according to a mobile analytics firm.
Reportedly, this incredible milestone was caught by data tracker Sensor Tower. Even after the rocky start a few hours after the launch, the game now holds top charts on iOS and Android app stores. Surprisingly enough, each of those stats had been achieved before the game had even been out for 24 hours.
A follow-up from Sensor Tracker on Twitter says the game has now passed a whopping 20 million downloads and generated $2 million in revenue. This came alongside a lot of enthusiasm on Twitter about the game with many describing how satisfactory the experience was on the first days.
