Monthly active users (MAU) and total time spent playing Tencent’s hit mobile title “Honour of Kings” fell significantly year-on-year in February 2019, according to a report released Monday from Beijing-based data consultancy Analysys.

MAU for the title in February 2019 declined around 34% year-on-year to around 169 million, and the number of total time spent fell nearly 50% year-on-year to around 164 million hours.

“Honour of Kings” is the most popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) mobile game in China, and the decline in its play time weighed heavily on the entire genre, according to Analysys analyst Liao Xuhua.
