Four months after the release, the number of daily active players has already exceeded the mark of 14 million players, excluding China, Japan and Korea. Developers regularly release updates that add new maps and game modes, as well as hosting various events to help maintain player interest. "We want to thank the Lightspeed and Quantum Studios development teams, and extend individual thanks to the dedicated players around the world who continue to inspire us," said Tencent general manager Vincent Wong.
