It fought off stiff competition to take home the prize with the likes of Genshin Impact, Teamfight Tactics: League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra and the Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross all among the nominees. All giant, recognisable names.
World Cricket Championship 3’s win is perhaps not so surprising when you learn that the franchise as a whole – including the previous entries to the series – has racked up 143 million-plus downloads since the original game launched. Between February and August this year alone it saw 22 million downloads as folks looked to virtual cricket for their fix during a tough year for live sport.
Discussing the win, P.R. Rajendran Co-founder and CEO of Next Wave Multimedia said: “We are absolutely elated by this recognition and would like to credit the fans of WCC for this feat! Being a fan driven game, we plan to continue to innovate and usher more features and engage even more players.
World Cricket Championship 3 is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It’s a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
