Candy Crush Saga has been one of the most influential games along with PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. The game was released way back in 2016 which took the smartphone world by storm. The fun productive and sweet theme managed to hold the attention of countless people. One would expect that after over 2 years the hype may have settled down but that is certainly not the case.
According to a report by Sensor Tower, the game managed to generate a record high revenue of $128 million just this month. In the month of October, the developer King experienced a month over month growth of over 8%. The game reached an all-time high in the month of October partially because of the trick or treat theme but mostly because of its addicting levels. The latest addition to the series is Candy Crush Friends Saga which quite surprisingly was only good for $5.6 million out of the total. The report suggests that over 64% of the revenue was generated from the original Candy Crush Saga game while 26% of it was generated by Candy Crush Soda Saga.
It is evident that the game is not dying anytime soon and if King keeps on adding content, it’ll stay on top. Altogether, King’s Candy Crush games have grossed an estimated $1.33 billion on mobile so far in 2018. In a world full of PUBG Mobile and Fortnite it seems that King is doing pretty well. The hype is certainly not dying anytime soon and we hope that King keeps on adding newer content to the series which shaped up the modern smartphone game design.
