ByteDance’s largest market for player spending in this period is Japan, which accounts for about 34 percent of the total.

The remarkable revenues are considered a success as it faces fierce competition from Tencent and NetEase.

ByteDance has launched subsidiaries such as Ohayoo and Nuverse. Last year, it acquired Mobile Legends: Bang Bang developer Moonton and Girls Chronicle: Idle Heroine studio C4, as a new step into the global game market.
