Supercell’s mobile real-time strategy game “Clash Royale” has grossed an estimated $2.5 billion on the App Store and Google Play in just over three years, according to market intelligence company Sensor Tower.
That’s an average of nearly $2.3 million spent by players each day since the game’s launch in March 2016, Sensor Tower said. The U.S. contributed the most to the game’s revenues, accounting for about 30%, or approximately $750 million, since launch. Other regions trailed significantly. Germany, for example, was second place with only 9% of all spending. Revenues were split fairly evenly between the App Store and Google Play, which each platform pocketing close to $375 million. The remaining $1.75 billion went to Supercell.
“Of course, that’s on top of what the publisher has already made from ‘Clash of Clans,’ which our data shows grossed about $700 million more than ‘Clash Royale’ in its first three years of availability, putting its haul as of its third launch anniversary in 2015 at an estimated $3.2 billion,” said Sensor Tower head of mobile insights Randy Nelson. “Since its launch in August 2012, ‘Clash of Clans’ has brought in approximately $6.4 billion from players worldwide.”
“Clash Royale” earned more than $33 million last month and was ranked the 18th top-grossing mobile game worldwide.
