Free Fire turned out to be the biggest hit of last year’s mobile games, among both Apple and Google smartphone users. This marks the second year in a row that the Garena mobile game won the coveted title.
This info came courtesy of App Annie’s State of Mobile 2021 report, which also showed that Among Us! was the second most downloaded game of 2020; Tencent’s PUBG Mobile came in at fourth place, right behind Subway Surfers.
This celebratory news is followed by a blazing trail of numerous milestones that Free Fire has had over the past year. Free Fire content enjoyed over 72 billion views on YouTube last year, making it the third most watched game of 2020. It’s also the second most popular live game, garnering over 2.5 million peak concurrent viewers for the Asia Series of the Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS), breaking its own record in the world of Free Fire esports. It’s no wonder why they were able to carry out world-class collaborations with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, DJ KSHMR, Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, and even other popular media like Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) and One Punch Man.
However, that’s just the beginning of Free Fire world domination. Garena aren’t resting on their laurels just yet, with an exciting schedule for Free Fire esports this year and One Punch Man content (released on 10 January) to kickstart the 2021 new year.
