Thanks to the great success of their title, they have expanded their market to many other parts of the world (one of their flagship titles is Garena Free Fire).


It should be noted that for the year 2015 il its market value at the time was 2,5 billion, a figure which is believed to have grown considerably, considering that Free Fire was launched two years later, (the current figure is not known, but it is known or estimated that it is higher ).
