FREE FIRE REACHES RECORD SALES AND 100 MILLION ACTIVE PLAYERS
Free Fire is a Battle Royale game distributed by Garena , which consists of launching fifty parachute players on an island in search of weapons and equipment in order to be the last survivor to be the winner of the game.

According to the Garena report, Free Fire reached a new record of more than 100 million daily active users. The previous record was 80 million in May / 2020 .
This means that in the period from May to June 2020, in one or more days, the game beat 100 million active players simultaneously on the servers spread around the world.
According to App Annie, a mobile analytics company, Free Fire had the highest collection of mobile games in Latin America and Southeast Asia in the second quarter of 2020.
Sea Limited increased 61.6% of its turnover, from $ 443.2 million in the 3 months of the second quarter of 2019, to $ 716.2 million in the second quarter of 2020.
