How Much Garena Free Fire Earns in The First Quarter of 2021

In Q1 2021, Garena Free Fire hits $100 million in revenue (US market alone). Garena Free Fire overtook Tencent's PUBG Mobile as the top-grossing mobile Battle Royale game in the US. Its grossing grew four-time as much as the previous month.

As Sensor Tower shows in its latest data report (June 2021), Garena Free Fire ranks 8th in the top 10 highest-grossing games. However, we cannot wrap our fingers around how much Garena Free Fire earns from India.

But we're pretty certain that Free Fire's revenue in India cannot surpass that in the US. It's true that India has the biggest Free Fire community in the world. However, the American community is more lucrative, meaning the players there spend more money in the game. On top of that, the price for Diamonds in the US is way more expensive.

The ongoing pandemic has a visible impact on users' spending patterns. People are spending more money online than they ever did. In H1 2021, global consumer spending in mobile games reached $44.7 billion, up 17.9 percent year-on-year. Last year, consumer spending in mobile games also climbed 25.5 percent to $37.9 billion from about $30.2 billion in 1H19.

So there's definitely room for Free Fire to grow.
