According to the prediction of Newzoo, the revenue generated by the global mobile game market will decline for the first time in 2022, but last year, many games around the world still achieved outstanding business results, and even maintained growth after being launched many years ago.
There is no doubt that Tencent’s Honor of Kings tops the list. After breaking through US $1 billion for the first time in 2017, the game saw a slight decline in 2018, with an annual revenue of US $1.04 billion. Since then, the income of Honor of Kings has continued to grow, reaching 1.15 billion dollars in 2019, 1.5 billion dollars in 2020 and 1.76 billion dollars in 2021. Looking back to 2022, the revenue of the game hit a new high of 2.2 billion dollars. With the holding of the electronic contest and the launch of overseas versions, Honor of Kings has gained unprecedented popularity and profits.
PUBG Mobile ranked second. It is estimated that the global income in 2022 will be 1.73 billion US dollars, including 1.27 billion US dollars from China and 460 million US dollars from abroad. However, 2022 will be a difficult year for games due to the conflict between Indian sanctions and Krafton’s same IP products.
The third place winner, Genshin Impact, can be said to be one of the latest top ten strong players on the list. Naturally, the commercial performance of the game is also making great strides year by year. From $407 million at the end of 2020 to $1.26 billion in 2021, and then to $1.56 billion in 2022, Genshin Impact’s income shows a healthy growth. And Chinese players once again contributed to the excellent performance of Genshin Impact. The domestic iOS version alone contributed $719 million of the $1.56 billion revenue of Genshin Impact in 2022, accounting for nearly half.
Candy Crush Saga, as the leading player of Match 3 Game, will continue to perform strongly in 2022. It will not only receive 168 million downloads, a new high after 2019, but also it keeps increasing year by year, reaching 1.03 billion dollars in 2022, which is the first time that the annual revenue of this product exceeds 1 billion dollars.
However, Roblox, the fifth film, is not so lucky. Compared with 958 million dollars in 2021, the revenue of Roblox in 2022 decreased by nearly 100 million dollars, only 862 million dollars. Of course, this may only be the natural impact of the decline of the epidemic dividend. After all, before the outbreak in 2019, Roblox’s annual income was only $364 million, less than half of last year’s. The same situation also occurred in Coin Master. Compared with the 9/66 million dollars in 2021, the revenue of games in 2022 decreased by 146 million dollars to only 800 million dollars.
In addition to the games mentioned above, there are many other games that deserve our attention. Royal Match, which has always been in the forefront of the US market, failed to rank among the top 20 and ranked 21st with less than $428 million in revenue. Although NetEase’s Diablo: Immortal will only be online for more than half a year in 2022, it still has a revenue of $343 million. King’s second largest game is Candy Crush Soda Saga, which will earn $287 million in 2022, while the third largest game, Farm Heroes Saga, will earn only $72 million.
