🚀 Market Wire | Honkai Star Rail is the #1 Game in the World
HoYoverse's new turn-based RPG game hits #1 in both worldwide downloads and revenue!
Yes, all of the hype around Honkai Star Rail is true! Despite some claims from another major game publisher, HoYoverse’s Honkai Star Rail is the true #1 game in the world.
I’ve written about how Chinese game companies like HoYoverse will increasingly be impossible to compete with.
The future is now.
Tencent and HoYoverse both have two top-10 worldwide revenue games and don’t look to be slowing down any time soon. They will continue to increase their competitive advantage and whoop ass over competitors still living in the age of excess.
Top 10 Charts
Honkai Star Rail makes the jump in revenue to achieve #1 overall worldwide in downloads and revenue. Congrats to the folks at HoYoverse.
Worldwide revenue war is now between Tencent vs. HoYoverse as both have 2 games in top 10 worldwide revenue each.
It never ceases to amaze me how match-3 games can continue to dominate top-revenue charts.
Some massive UA wars are happening in the US for download volume, especially between the top 5 besides ROBLOX who are largely organically ranking. I hope these guys are backing out on their spend.
What the heck is Eggy Party?
I would love to see someone try to do a TFT game for the West but with all of the monetization of Battle of Golden Spatula.

🔦 Spotlight | Honkai Star Rail

This game is destroying top charts as the #1 downloaded and #1 revenue game this past week. According to data.ai estimates, Honkai Star Rail generates about $4M-$5M daily in net revenue in its early launch!
