According to Sensor Tower (as reported by Reuters), Call of Duty: Mobile has seen the biggest video game mobile launch ever, beaking out the likes of PUBG (26.3 million), Fortnite (22.5 million) and even Apex Legends at 25 million. Mario Kart Tour which is, of course, is a completely different genre, managed a whopping 90 million downloads in its first week.
According to the report, the head of mobile insights at Sensor Tower, Randy Nelson, said that:

That’s an extremely impressive number, to say the least, especially with a rocky start for the game when players couldn’t connect at launch.
If you want to get in on what looks to be the next big thing in mobile gaming from Tencent Games, all you need to do is head on over to the Apple App Store or the Google PlayStore and start downloading the game, preferably over a Wi-Fi connection as the game is roughly 1.5gb in size.
Activision and Tencent plan to release additional free content for Call of Duty: Mobile via seasonal updates, adding game modes, items and more to the game which is a great way to support this highly successful title.
