Here’s another milestone to Pokemon Go. The Japanese gamer maker Nintendo’s game has surpassed 100 million downloads over the weekend.
While numerous hardcore players are frustrated with the shutdown of third-party trackers like Pokevision and loss of its nearby tracking feature, Pokemon Go downloads continue and have officially topped 100,000,000 according to App Store intelligence firm App Annie.
According to a report from App Annie, Pokemon GO has been installed over 100 million times – quite the increase over the 25 million from late July (which was. just last month). “Instead, it has opened up new engagement and revenue opportunities for the entire app ecosystem by creating a model to close the online-to-offline (O2O) loop”.
The company also said that it is working hard to bring the game to other countries, giving a specific mention to Brazil. As TechCrunch noted, the game was downloaded 50 million times on Android within only 19 days according to previous estimates, whereas it took 77 days for ColorSwitch to get to that point.
It further add, “In addition, we have not noticed any meaningful declines in daily revenue for top-grossing games like Mobile Strike, Clash of Clans or Candy Crush Saga”.
The game’s developer Niantic Inc recently rolled out the very first update to its blockbuster mobile video game, Pokemon Go.
Apple had previously said that the app had set a new record for launch week downloads, but had not revealed the number – though one analyst estimated that the game could be worth as much as $3B to Apple over a 1-2 year timeframe. Incidentally, the users using Google accounts to log in are not facing any such issue.
