1，As with many infographics, it’s not clear where the information has come from, but Superdata has made a big claim about Supercell’s success in 2014.
It ranks the top three mobile games during the year by revenue as follows.
King’s Candy Crush Saga is said to have generated $1 billionGungHo Online’s Puzzle & Dragons is estimated to have generated $1.5 billion, whileSupercell’s Clash of Clans is rated at a massive $1.8 billion.Back of a fag packet
To put the claim into some sort of context, Candy Crush and Puzzle & Dragons were the first two mobile games to generate $1 billion in revenue, and because both King (NYSE:KING) and GungHo (TYO:3765) are floated companies – on the New York and Tokyo Stock Exchanges respectively – it’s relatively easy to estimate how much these games could have generated.
Hence these figures are not unreasonable, or surprising.
But the Clash of Clans’ total seems high.
Interestingly, despite being privately owned, Supercell did announce its 2013 financials in early 2014, revealing that Clash of Clans and Hay Day generated $892 million.
(Now it’s 51 percent owned by Softbank, it’s not clear whether the company will announce its 2014 figures, however.)（source：pocketgamer.biz ）
