Somewhat delayed we are releasing our weekly ranking check for G5 Entertainment today. The overall rankings for the games portfolio as such show no major new trend compared with recent weeks. What does continue to stand out is Secret Society and its success around the world, primarily on iPad. The game continues to be among the top 5o grossing games on iPad in the USA, which (as we have discussed in a recent article), could be worth around SEK 3.5m per quarter. Adding revenues from other countries and also iPhone (to a lesser extent), we believe the game alone could generate around SEK 10m per quarter at current performance levels. Trends in recent days were actually upwards and today Secret Society is ranked #44 in the USA. It is also ranked #34 in Canada, #58 in Germany, #51 in France, #64 in South Korea, #57 in Russia, #53 in Italy and #73 in the UK.
Elsewhere, G5 Entertainment released the sequel to its smash-hit Special Enquiry Detail for iPhone and iPad yesterday. The game was highly successful with top 10 grossing positions in several countries. Check out this review of the PC version which is very promising: http://www.examiner.com/review/the-impatient-gamer-reviews-special-enquiry-detail-engaged-to-kill
We believe comments regarding the success of Secret Society could be the highlight next week when G5 will present its Q1 2013 report on May 15th. As always, the actual numbers are not too much of a surprise due to the fact that G5 has already released preliminary numbers at the beginning of April in is usual mid-quarter update.
