We knew that Pokemon Go was a big hit over the summer, with the augmented reality free-to-play game from developer Niantic Labs becoming an international obsession, at least for a few weeks. As it turns out, the in-game purchases in Pokemon Go may have brought in more money in its first 90 days than any other mobile game during the same time period.
The mobile market researcher App Annie claims that the game generated over $600 millions in its first 90 days. By comparison, it took Candy Crush Saga over 200 days to reach that milestone, and it took Clash of Clans over 500 days to reach the $600 million mark. Ninatic Labs has not offered any official information on how much money it has generated from Pokemon Go, so App Annie’s numbers should be taken with a grain of salt.
