Update: After the publication of this article, an Activision representative reached out to point out that the company's annual report mentioned annual consumer spending on Call of Duty: Mobile was "well above" $1 billion in 2021 alone.
The $1 billion figure is what Activision and Tencent have earned from the game. AppMagic data is based on developer payout, it does not include the 30% cut from mobile platforms.
We regret the error.
