Less than two weeks ago, mobile app analytics firm App Annie estimated that Pokémon GO generated US$950 million from players around the world last year. Well, it doesn’t take long for the mobile game app to cross the US$1 billion mark, according to app analytics firm SensorTower.
SensorTower estimates that Pokémon GO has surpassed US$1 billion in worldwide gross revenue on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Considering that the game was launched barely seven months ago, it’s really impressive! In comparison, Clash Royale managed to generate about US$550 million revenue in the first seven months.
Although daily revenue has been decreasing since late July, SensorTower expects consumer spending to pick up in the coming weeks and months as Ninantic announces new events and major updates for Pokémon GO.
