League of Legends: Wild Rift from Riot Games is one of the most high profile recent launches on mobile, and in December claimed 3.6 million downloads on the App Store, enough to break into the top 10 for installs. Mobile MOBAs have classically found the West to be a challenging market, and it will be interesting to see if the League of Legends brand can change these fortunes. Currently, the title’s No. 1 country for App Store downloads is Vietnam, followed by Turkey and Taiwan. Another new entry to the charts is Imposter Solo Kill from IEC Games, which generated 16 million downloads across the App Store and Google Play combined. The title is inspired by Among Us, but instead focuses on a 3D art style and a levels-based single-player mode.
Call of Duty: Mobile by Activision, developed in partnership with Tencent, had its best month for downloads since November 2019 following a successful launch in China on Christmas. The title racked up 16.6 million installs last month, with 58.5 percent of those coming from China’s App Store. It’s a sign that, while Chinese publishers are successfully expanding internationally, U.S. publishers can do the same in China with the support of a local partner.
