Brawl Stars Finally Goes Global in December
After a prolonged soft launch period where the game went through a number of drastic change, Supercell finally announced yesterday that Brawl Stars will finally be getting a Global release! The Brawl Stars team went all-in to hype up this morning’s Global Announcement, going so far as to deleting its entire social media history and teasing fans with vague pictures and teasers only to surprise everyone with the big announcement via an influencer-filled Youtube stream.
The build up of the hype seems to have paid off with the game already picking up an uncanny 1 million pre-registrations within the first 6 hours of launch. Time will tell whether Brawl Stars can live up to the expectations set by its cousins in the Clash family or whether the game has the potential to break out as an mobile esport, but from what we’ve seen over the past months it can definitely count of its loyal fanbase to stick with this game through thick-and-thin.
