Tencent’s newest masterpiece, Call of Duty: Mobile has surpassed 35 million downloads on both iOS and Android merely 2 days after its global launch. The game did not have a dream start as almost a few hours after its launch, an error was reported about the game freezing on its loading screen but it was quickly brought to the developer’s notice and was fixed in no time. Activision also tweeted out about the unexpected and high amount of traffic over the game’s servers which also caused some difficulties but now everything seems to be under control as the game runs butter smooth without any further issues.
Activision now boasts that COD: Mobile is ranked as number one on the App Store in more than 100 countries worldwide. The game supports both iPhone and iPad models along with Android devices. Rob Kostich, President, Activision had a few words to say:
“This is an incredibly fun experience, and we’re only getting started. Congratulations to the teams at Activision and at our partner Tencent’s TiMi Studios for making such a great game for players. And special thanks to our fans for their continued support.”
Sensor tower has estimated that within 2 days of its launch, the game has managed to generate a revenue of approximately $2 million (approx. 14 crores) for its developers with its record breaking 35 million downloads to add to its success. The par breaking feature of the game is that it offers a Battle Royale mode alongside its widely renowned 5 versus 5 multiplayer mode which attracted console players of the game to the mobile version.
We are excited to see the development of Call of Duty: Mobile’s own esports scene which would completely alter the course of Mobile esports and take it to a whole another level.
