Pokémon GO is a massive hit in sales earning more than $2 million per day. Judging by the recent report by Sensor Tower, Niantic's augmented reality Pokémon hunting game has earned almost $800 million - $795 million to be exact - in 2018 only which is a solid growth compared to 2017.
In case you were wondering how's Pokémon GO doing - it's doing great. The game was actually a lot more popular in media outlets when it first came out, but it's the players who determine the outcome - and they have spent 35% more during 2018 on Pokémon GO than in 2017. Daily average revenue from the game equated to nearly $2.2 million which is a huge leap forward when you take into consideration the same indicator for 2017 which was around $1.6 million.
When comparing the final months of 2018 and 2017 it turns out that Pokémon GO saw a substantial increase in revenue - up to $75 million in December 2018 from $57.2 million in December 2017. Sensor Tower notes that the steadily growing flow of money is stimulated by a chain of regular updates that keep players engaged, which results in total earnings exceeding $2.2 billion since the game launched in 2016.
Sensor Tower assumes that Pokémon GO has everything needed to reach $3 billion by the end of the current year - which is a safe prediction judging by Niantic's dedication to support its blockbuster.
