Free Fire Registers More Than 1 Billion Downloads on Google Play Store
Free Fire continues to grow as one of the leading mobile Battle Royale titles.
Garena has achieved a huge milestone as Free Fire successfully crossed more than a billion downloads on the Google Play Store. This feat is achieved by the mobile title three years after its release, after already having become the most downloaded game on Google Play Store in 2019 and 2020. Free Fire also became the highest grossing mobile Battle Royale across multiple regions like Latin America, Southeast Asia, and India in the first quarter of 2021. The report from Garena further stating that such a leading position had been maintained by Free Fire for seven consecutive quarters in Latin America and SEA while maintaining the same streak in India for the last two quarters.
Free Fire Reaches One Billion Downloads
Free Fire has been growing at a rapid rate across multiple regions, establishing itself as one of the most successful mobile Battle Royale titles. It has reportedly taken Free Fire just one and a half years to go from 500 million downloads to more than a billion in July 2021.
This is possible due to the game's dominance across multiple regions like Latin America, Southeast Asia, and even India for the past six months, their growth uncontested due to PUBG Mobile's ban in the country.
Even when it comes to the competitive front Free Fire did extremely well with Free Fire World Series (FFWS) 2021 Singapore registering over 5.4 Million viewers in the first round of the Grand Finals, according to Esports Charts.
With this, FFWS 2021 Singapore achieved the record of becoming the most-watched Free Fire tournament as well as the most-watched esports tournament of all time, beating last year’s Free Fire Continental Series (FFCS) Asia that peaked at 2.5 Million viewers.
Apart from this Free Fire has also been pumping out great content for its users in collaboration with multiple big brands and companies like McLaren, Street Fighter, Attack on Titan, Demon Slayer, Sơn Tùng M-TP (Vietnam), and more.
With such a huge milestone being achieved by Free Fire, Garena will surely be rolling out some sort of a celebratory event or at least a reward for all its users. This is because when Free Fire had become the most downloaded mobile game globally in 2020 it had rewarded all its users with a free melee weapon bat skin.
The future surely looks exciting for Free Fire and survivors as always will be keen on learning what Garena has in store for all of them!
