Back in July when Pokemon GO was first launched, its initial success had many believing that the game had the potential to make $1 billion a year. We know, that is a huge sum of money that many developers probably never get to see, and if you’re wondering if the game could reach those levels, it seems like it is on track.
According to a report from Sensor Tower, they are reporting that Pokemon GO has managed to make $440 million to date, which means that if things keep going the way they do, we wouldn’t be surprised if the game managed to double that amount by the end of the year, or maybe it could even hit the $1 billion mark.
The report notes that Pokemon GO is no longer the number one grossing app in some countries, but apparently it still manages to pull $4 million in worldwide net revenue on a daily basis! Several years ago we reported that Candy Crush was making more than half a million a day which was already impressive, but that number just pales in comparison to this.
We should point out that while the game is still making a ton of money, they are also appearing to be losing their daily player base. Last we checked, the game lost several million daily active players, but it is possible that the numbers we are seeing now are the normalized figures. In any case what do you guys think? Will Pokemon GO be able to pull in $1 billion by the end of the year?
