Mobile analytics expert App Annie has named the 52 highest earning app store publishers of 2016, and Chinese giant Tencent leads the charge. 

Rankings are based on revenue earned from paid downloads and in-app purchases on the iOS and Google Play app stores from January 1, 2016, to December 31, 2016. 


Pokemon Go developer-publisher Niantic made its chart debut in tenth place, highlighting the success of its augmented reality catch 'em up. The top 10 includes others notable names such as Activision Blizzard, Bandai Namco, Game of War creator MZ, and Japanese internet juggernaut, LINE. 

Asian-Pacific publishers dominated the top 52 yet again, with 30 of those featured hailing from that region, and in particular the United States and Japan.
