On the fifth anniversary of the mobile sensation- Pokemon Go, it was discovered that the game has gathered a whopping $5 billion in revenue. According to a recent analysis from Sensor Tower, Niantic’s iOS and Android games have made a crazy amount of money in the half-decade since it originally launched.
Over the last five years, Pokemon Go has made an estimated $5 billion revenue. Sensor Tower, a mobile app tracking website, reports that the firm reached a sales milestone earlier this year, collecting over $642 million in revenue in the first six months of 2021. Despite the regular user decline, Pokemon Go’s strong 2021 follows a history of upward growth, with the game making more cash each year.
The United States accounts for over 40% of the game’s income, closely followed by Japan. The two firms together account for more than 68 percent of Pokemon Go’s annual income. Since its release, Pokemon Go has been downloaded over 632 million times.
Previously, it was claimed that The Pokémon Company’s revenue from intellectual property and the sale of rights to it in 2020 was $ 5.1 billion, up to $900 million from 2019. As a result, the company has grown to become one of the top ten licensors in the world.
