The rise of COD Mobile in India
India has always been a fan of the battle royales, whether it’d be PUBG Mobile, Free Fire, or Call Of Duty Mobile. India has recorded the highest number of users in those titles. In fact, According to a report by Sensor Tower, when the game made its way to the market, India was one of the first countries to record the highest number of installations within 24 hours of its release.
Call Of Duty Mobile slowly started picking up its pace in the Indian community. But the PUBG Mobile ban was one of the major turnarounds in the rise of Call Of Duty Mobile esports when many esports firms shifted their focus to this game. Another way, it impacted the game’s esports scene is when gaming influencers and streamers shifted to the game what made it more recognizable in India.
The consequence of events then led to multiple numbers of minor, major, and Invitation tournaments like the CODM India Invitationals, CODM Dominator, CODM India Challenge( including a share of 6 lakhs), etc. which involved some of the biggest gaming influencers and professional teams from the country.
