Genshin Impact has become the highest-grossing mobile game globally for September 2021. The miHoYo-developed title generated almost $341.7 million on iOS and Android, which is its best result ever.
According to Sensor Tower, China’s App Store accounted for 31.6% of the game’s total revenue for September. It is followed by the US (21.7%) and Japan (21%).
It is worth noting that the release of version 2.1 was the main driver behind these results. In the first week of September, Genshin Impact reached $150 million in player spending, which was an almost five times increase week-over-week.
Honor of Kings became the second highest-grossing mobile game for September 2021, generating $209 million. It is followed by PUBG Mobile, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, and Candy Crush.
