In February 2018, Epic Games stated that the title was played by roughly 3.4 million gamers concurrently. Since then, that figure has ballooned to over 8.3 million.

Help! Choosing a console is just as hard as choosing a phone

I really want to play the new Super Smash Brothers. And Spiderman. And State of Decay 2. But I’m not made of money.

Lara Croft GO shows how to adapt a console franchise to mobile devices (Review)

Unfortunately for the Play Store and mobile gaming in general, there are very few examples of franchises that have transitioned in the right way from console to mobile gaming.
