Garena Free Fire saw its highest-ever player numbers during the second quarter of 2020. A report published by Sea Limited, the parent company of Garena, said that app data and analytics platform App Annie recorded Free Fire as the highest-grossing mobile game in both Latin America and Southeast Asia.
The report claims that Free Fire achieved a new record high of over 100M peak daily active users in Q2 of 2020. Most likely this is a result of people staying at home and playing games on their smartphones.
A new milestone for Garena Free Fire
During this period, Q2 of 2020, Free Fire also ranked third in the most downloaded mobile games category according to App Annie.
The report also states, “In July 2020, Garena hit a new record high in monthly adjusted revenue. Free Fire also achieved a new record in monthly paying users in July, which more than doubled within a year.” The game has increased its users by 20 million in just one quarter.
The company has also announced exciting new content, like the partnership with Netflix for a Money Heist themed event in the game.
In esports tournaments, Free Fire has also shown surprising numbers, accumulating 120 million online views in the second quarter of 2020. The report also points out the success of the Free Fire Asia All-Stars 2020, an online tournament hosted in June that reached 20 million views in two days.
Recently, Garena also introduced a new format to replace the canceled Free Fire World Series, which was supposed to happen in Brazil in the final quarter of the year. The Free Fire Continental Series 2020 will happen online and simultaneously in three regions around the world in November.
