Honor of Kings is the first mobile game in history to bring in $10 billion.
Honor of Kings has become the most successful mobile game in terms of revenue generated. Tencent’s multiplayer online battlefield game has earned over $10 billion in micro-transactions since its launch in 2015. In some countries it’s known as Arena of Valor and was launched on Android and iPhone in 2017 and on Switch in 2019.
This number comes from a report by Sensor Tower, a mobile app market analysis company, which states Honor of Kings is the most successful mobile game in history. In one week, it was installed on nearly 30 million devices, according to the report. Just in the first two available days, the number of downloads reached 15 million times.
During 2020, amid the coronavirus pandemic and lockdowns, average monthly in-game spending increased by 43% compared to the previous year. In 2021, it continues to rise: at the moment, 14%, thanks mainly to the game’s success in China.
It is worth mentioning that Honor of Kings was developed by TiMi Studios and published by Tencent for both Android and iOS operating systems. The gameplay in the game is simple, you will choose a hero and then continue to gain experience and gold through victories in the battles against your opponents.
