SuperCell Reveals $689 Million GAAP Revenue for Clash of Clans
The third highest grossing mobile game in the world also has an amazing tax bill.
After reports that SuperCell’s Clash of Clans was garnering $654,000 a day, the developer has revealed in its recent financial report which saw a GAAP revenue $689 million, with earnings prior to tax revenue coming in at $322 million for last year.
SuperCell CEO Ilkka Paananen stated that, “It’s no secret that some players spend substantial amounts of money on these games. But I wouldn’t say the vast majority of revenue comes from them.
“These people usually come from an investment banker or lawyer background, and they spend a lot of money on golf courses and so on. I’ve asked them ‘Why do you spend so much money on these games?’ and they say ‘People spend money on golf, I spend money on Clash of Clans.’”
Gamasutra also revealed that the developer’s tax bill is an amazingly large $345 million. How’s that for free to play revenue? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
