pokemon-goAccording to the analysis by App Annie, Pokemon GO is said to be poised to make as much as $1 billion a year in in-app purchases. The report goes on to claim that the game has made $1 million so far which is pretty impressive in itself. However a new report from Superdata claims that the game has actually made a lot more at $14 million.

They claim that this allowed the app to surpass Pokemon Shuffle Mobile that made $14.03 million since its release in August 2015. “Early estimates indicate that Pokémon GO! has so far managed to generate $14.04 million across mobile platforms since its release, putting it ahead of other titles using the franchise, including Pokémon Shuffle Mobile which has earned an estimated $14.03 million since its release in August, 2015.”

Now $14 million is a lot of money for an app that has been released for about two weeks. It should also be pointed out that the game is still not available in many countries. Its international release was halted due to server issues and it was only recently that the game had started to make its way to Europe starting with Germany.

We’re not sure what Superdata got their numbers from but since these aren’t official numbers from Niantic/Nintendo/The Pokemon Company, maybe we shouldn’t take it at face value for now, but if there’s one thing we can all agree on is that without a doubt, the game is taking the world by storm.
