Another week another increase – that’s how the current games revenue development on the US iphone market can be described. Looking at the daily revenues generated by the top grossing games, as provided by www.thinkgaming.com, we notice that there has been a steady increase ever since December 2013.
This is sharply against the historical seasonal pattern of a strong start to the year followed by some slower months,line with the comments given by G5 Entertainment’s management yesterday in connection with their Q1 2014 report. We believe this shift comes amid the dominance of free-to-play titles which apparently keep players engaged on a more regular basis, rather than generating peak sales at certain times of the year.
This is a major positive for the likes of G5 Entertainment, Glu Mobile and CMGE.
