While Diablo Immortal took 8 weeks to “pocket” 100 million USD from users, Pokemon Go only needed a quarter of that time.
Diablo Immortal players have spent 100 million USD (nearly 2.4 trillion VND) on the mobile version alone since the game was released two months ago. This information is shared by Sensor Tower along with a comparison table of the fastest mobile games to achieve the feat.
Accordingly, Pokemon Go is the game with the best record, taking only 2 weeks to achieve this revenue. Besides, Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Heroes took 10 weeks, Fortnite and Final Fantasy 15: A New Empire took 12 and 22 weeks to reach $100 million respectively. Many people believe that this revenue of Diablo has increased many times because the game has just been released in China for a few days.
It is known that Diablo Immortal was the most downloaded application on the App Store in the first two days of its launch in China. It was the third highest grossing game in the country on July 25, and rose to the top 2 the next day. That makes the game expected to be a formidable competitor to Tencent’s localized PUBG Mobile and the hugely popular Honor of Kings.
In the announcement a week ago, Blizzard is also happy to “show” that Diablo Immortal has been downloaded 20 million times (both PC and Mobile). Sensor Tower says Blizzard’s free-to-play game is the 13th largest grossing mobile game worldwide since its release on June 2. This game has “sword fish” the most in the United States, followed by Korea and Japan.
