Call of Duty: Mobile is the “largest mobile game launch in history,” according to Sensor Tower.

Call of Duty: Mobile has been downloaded 100 million times since its release Oct. 1, outranking the mobile launches of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, industry analyst firm Sensor Tower confirmed to CNET on Tuesday. 

The mobile version of the popular first-person shooter game, available for Android and iPhone, had a troubled release from publisher Activision Blizzard, with users unable to play the game initially. However, those problems appear to have largely been resolved and didn’t deter people from downloading the game. 

“This is by far the largest mobile game launch in history in terms of the player base that’s been built in the first week,” Randy Nelson, head of mobile insights at Sensor Tower, told Reuters, who reported the story earlier. 

The 100 million figure represents worldwide unique downloads across the App Store and Google Play store in the past week, according to Sensor Tower. In comparison, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds saw 26.3 million downloads in its first week of release, while Fortnite saw 22.5 million.
