Box Office Top 52 (world)

Last year, Playrix was in 7th position. The increased sales of Gardenscapes – New Acres and Fishdom: Deep Dive helped her to rise.

A year earlier Mail.Ru Group was also in the top, but then it closed the selection, which App Annie also calls its “deck”. The company’s growth was provided by increased revenue War Robots, Love Sick: Interactive Stories and the VK social network.

There were no other companies based in Russia or the CIS in the global selection. The top was headed by Chinese Tencent and NetEase, who actively earned money on Game For Peace (the Chinese version of PUBG) and Knives Out, respectively.

In general, the top was dominated by Chinese companies of the company. Out of 52 positions, 16 remained behind them. Companies officially registered in the USA had the same number.
