Call of Duty: Mobile (CODM) has officially become the largest mobile game launch in history.

PUBG, Fortnite and Electronic Arts' Apex Legends respectively scored 26.3 million, 22.5 million and 25 million in their first week of release.

Sensor Tower said on Tuesday, the debut of the debuffs of "Fortnite" and "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" (PUBG).

The mobile version of the popular first-person shooter game, available for Android and iPhone, had a troubled release from publisher Activision Blizzard, with users unable to play the game initially.

The game's console-based editions have enjoyed a loyal following but the meteoric rise of free-to-play online games have forced companies to adapt and develop their games for the smaller screen.

An astonishing number of Call of Duty players have chose to move away from their console and PCs following the release of COD Mobile, marking the largest launch of any game on the platform. Tencent's in China still about to start the game. With a yearly release schedule, "Call of Duty" is one of the best-selling video game franchise of all time, and its successful launch on mobile is a reflection of the game's massive global community.
