Gameloft (EPA:GFT), possibly the most popular mobile game developer, has revealed it has sold over 20 million games on Apple’s App Store since its inception in July 2008. Impressive stuff!
To hit the huge number it’s taken over 100 releases, 47 of those this year alone. Unbelievably all but 5 of those have been part of the store’s top 5 best-selling games. 5 of those even made it to number one!
The first half of 2010 marks a new step for us on the App Store,” declared Michel Guillemot, President of Gameloft. “The launch of the iPad and iPhone 4 has opened new horizons for developers and allowed us once again to transform our consumers gaming experience. 20 million paid downloads is proof that our games meet the expectations of our players and we will continue to satisfy them
With releases such as Let’s Golf and Brothers in Arms 2, it’s possibly not all that surprising after all.
