Forge Of Empires Hits 250 Million EUR Mark In Revenue
If you've ever questioned the profitability of browswer-based free-to-play games, then Forge of Empires is here for you. Earlier today, InnoGames revealed that the game hit a lifetime revenue mark of EUR 250 million (just under 280 million USD). This means that the game has increased its revenue intake year over year as it had hit the 100 million mark in 2015, three years after launch. Considering the initial development costs of the game was 1 million EUR, that's... not bad.
Of course, it's important to note that this number does include the mobile games. In fact, mobile counts for the larger share of revenue, as noted by InnoGames' CEO Hendrik Klindworth:
"I'm especially proud of our achievements in mobile as we've been able to grow this segment to our main driver in terms of revenue which underlines our successful overall transition to mobile. We are excited to further accelerate our journey while providing our players with the best game experiences possible."
