Supercell finds success with tablets
Tablet gaming has been growing in popularity over the past several years. Tablet devices have managed to capture the interest and support of consumers all over the world, many of whom are highly interested in mobile gaming. Game developers are taking notice of this growing interest in mobile gaming, especially on the tablet front, and have been focusing more on developing games for tablet devices specifically. Supercell, a Finnish game developer, has taken the approach of developing games for tablet platforms before any other platform.
Developer generates $1 million in revenue daily
Supercell is a small development company comprised of roughly 70 people. Though the development studio is quite small, it has managed to etch out a great deal of success. Supercell is currently generating approximately $1 million in revenue on a daily basis, which is coming from two games: Hay Day and Clash of Clans, which are both available only for the iOS. This means that the developer has gained a significant amount of momentum since October of this year, when The New York Times reported that it was only making $500,000 daily from the same games.
Supercell overcomes Electronic Arts
Supercell has surpassed Electronic Arts in the realm of revenue generated through the iOS platform each month. This is a major milestone for any development company since Electronic Arts has long been one of the dominating forces in the game industry. Electronic Arts accounts for more than 960 mobile gaming applications that are available through the Apple App Store, all of which have been beaten by the 2 mobile games that come from Supercell.
Supercell may soon become the next super power in gaming
Supercell has established a strong presence in the mobile gaming space. Backed by strong support from tablet gamers, the developer is expected to continue gaining momentum into the future. If the developer can mimic the success of its first two games, it may soon become one of the next major development studios in the game industry.
