Tencent’s battle royale title “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” (PUBG) Mobile was the world’s highest-grossing mobile game in March, as online entertainment increased during the coronavirus outbreak.

PUBG Mobile and its Chinese mainland version “Peacekeeper Elite” pocketed $232 million, more than three times the amount the game earned in the same period last year, according to a report by research firm SensorTower.

Approximately 61% of PUBG Mobile’s revenue came from China, followed by the U.S. with 11% and Japan with 3.6%.

March was the second straight month for PUBG Mobile and Peacekeeper Elite to break new revenue records in both domestic and overseas markets, SensorTower said.

Another Tencent title “Honor of Kings” and its overseas version raked in $112 million in revenue during the month, claiming the second spot. More than 90% of the game’s revenue was generated in China, according to the report.

Other titles performing well in March included Mixi’s Monster Strike, King’s Candy Crush Saga and Moon Active’s Coin Master.
