And we wonder why companies are increasingly shying away from the triple-A game space…
Bethesda has announced that recent iOS release Fallout Shelter managed to top the game charts in no less than 48 separate countries. It was the most downloaded app of any kind in 25 countries.
It remains the no.1 most downloaded game on the App Store worldwide, while I ranked in the top five highest grossing games in 37 countries – pipping Candy Crush Saga in the process.
In week one total daily play sessions exceeded 70m.
We play games on our phones all the time, and have always wanted to make one,” Bethesda game director Todd Howard said. To have our first mobile game be enjoyed by so many is stunning. It just shows that gamers appreciate more depth and being treated fairly. It also shows people love Fallout as much as we do.”
