The top grosser for the U.S. App Store downloads is no longer Niantic's "Pokemon GO."
"Clash Royale," the fast-paced, card based PvP brawler from Supercell took the top seat from the monster-hunting game, "Pokemon GO", after it rampaged its way to the pedestal for 74 days straight, according to CNET.
It was mentioned in the website that even with "Pokemon GO" dethroned; it will still take on the third spot when it comes to the longest period of influence in the download charts; next to "Candy Crush Saga" and "Clash of Clans."
The hit application game's fall from grace could be attributed to these certain factors:
- Clash Royale made an enormous update just last Monday which reeled in players back to the fold after a long absence with new cards plus another engaging tournament mode
- "Pokemon GO" hadn't had a lackluster movement when it came to updates, with just only a Buddy System to match which happened last July
- A lot of "Pokemon GO" fans have been crying their hearts out for a new improvements these past weeks
A representative from Niantic was quoted saying that:
"We recently revealed that Pokemon Go has been downloaded more than 500 million times since launch, with several more countries yet to be added," said a spokesperson for the company. "This growth has been entirely organic and we are quite happy with the massive number of ongoing users and game revenues and look forward to building and improving the game over many years."
With this being said; will Niantic be moving forward with the game reconsider acquiring a new platform model?
