The open-world action RPG mobile game Genshin Impact has ranked as the top spot of earnings for mobile games. Beating out PUBG, miHoYo’s game has earned about $2 billion USD in mobile store transactions. All of these earnings are from this year only.
Many of Genshin Impact’s players and customers are based in China, with over a quarter of the game’s first-year earnings coming from the Chinese player market on iOS devices. However, this number could be higher since most revenue trackers don’t account for third-party Android stores. Japan was the second-highest player market, making up 23.7% of the earnings. The U.S. follows close behind, making up 21%.
