Most of the revenue was generated during the first quarter of 2022 as the game accumulated $650 million in the quarter. However, if compared to the previous figures, the revenue has slightly dropped. A large chunk of the revenue came from China, as the country alone contributed $4.7 billion or 57% player spending.

The second highest market for the game was in USA that recorded more than 11% of player spending. Another thing worth noting here is that App Store revenue was much higher compared to the Google Play Store in China but in rest of the countries, the revenue in both the platforms was balanced.
