Sensor Tower: These are the top grossing mobile games for August 2022
Sensor Tower analytics have shared their findings on the best games in August 2022.
Honor of Kings is one of the best grossing mobile games in August 2022 by overall and App Store revenue. It has made $222M for Tencent, 94% of the revenue coming from China and the rest — from Taiwan and Thailand. But if you look at Google Play revenue, then the best mobile game is Lineage M, not even Lineage W that is far more recent.
The next 'top-grosser' is PUBG Mobile, don't misread it as PUBG: New State. Yes, this game is not on the top-10 list. It has earned $156.3 in August 2022, but again — 60.7% of revenue comes from China — the localized version, known as Game For Peace. The next country to bring money to PUBG Mobile is the US — 8.8%.
It's interesting to see Diablo Immortal in the list — it took the 6th place in the overall revenue, which is new for Blizzard's and NetEase Games' mobile MMO. If we talk about App Store, then Diablo Immortal took 4th place, getting higher in ranks. But still, it's not as good as Genshin Impact, which takes 3rd place in both overall and App Store revenue, with 8th place in Google Play. The game is 2 years old, so this is quite an achievement, which we contribute to the big 3.0 patch.
