Pokemon GO broke the $1 billion mark

Pokemon GO broke the $1 billion mark
Pokemon GO was the biggest success in the mobile games industry for 2016, and it continues to rack up millions of dollars on daily basis. While it doesn't generate the $18 million a day that it used to, it still manages to cash in with $1.5 to $2.5 million each day, seven months after its release in the US.

According to the app analytics company Sensor Tower, Pokemon GO managed to break the $1 billion mark in terms of revenue across all platforms. This makes it the fastest app to reach this milestone in mobile history, and it doesn't show signs of stopping.

For comparison, Clash Royale, one of the most successful mobile games ever, was released exactly 11 months ago and it has yet to break the $1 billion mark. Additionally, in its first seven months it grossed half of what Pokemon GO did, or approximately $550 million.

The continued success of Pokemon GO, even during the cold months of the year, is thanks to the regular events, such as the Halloween Bash, among other things. And with major content updates rumored to be coming soon, it's highly likely that the growth will continue.

I was wondering who still plays it as well. Maybe other countries/regions are still playing it - I know that the kids and some adults that used to play it stopped using it about late November last year.

I still play during the holiday events and usually open the app up once or twice a week when I'm bored.
