PUBG Mobile, from Tencent Games, is one of the most famous battle royale games in the world. But in some bad news, it has slipped one place to third in the highest-earning games worldwide list for October, as per a report by Sensor Tower.
PUBG Mobile also didn't make it to the list of top ten grossing games on Google Play Store, although it maintained second spot in the Apple App Store.
Genshin Impact, from miHoYo, launched in the last week of September, took first place with 239 million USD in player spending worldwide for October, according to Sensor Tower. Around 31% of the total revenue was generated from China, making it the highest contributor, followed by Japan's 24.5% and the USA with 19%.
Honor of Kings was the second highest-earning mobile game worldwide last month, with 225 million USD in revenue. Both Honor of Kings and PUBG Mobile are published by Chinese multinational technology conglomerate Tencent.
