Subway Surfers is in third place with 235.4 million downloads and PUBG Mobile is in 4th place with 232.5 million downloads.

Even though the game was banned in India, it still created a huge amount of revenue

Even though PUBG Mobile got banned in Indian and lost a huge amount of revenue, the game still topped the chart with $2.6 billion in revenue, followed by Honor of Kings with $2.4 billion. Meanwhile, Garena Free Fire doesn't make it to this chart even though it is the most downloaded game. It seems that players tend to spend much less in Free Fire than in PUBG Mobile.

If PUBG Mobile was released in India again, we can expect that the game will be back as the most downloaded game. However, there has been no sign that the game will be able to get unbanned in India.
