Publisher and developer Com2uS soared past another major monetary milestone this week as the long-running beloved mobile game phenomenon Summoners War: Sky Arena officially hit $2 billion in revenue. The monster-collecting competitive RPG reached the $1 billion revenue mark in 2017, roughly three years after its launch, and now hits $2 billion another three years later.
Com2uS has built a truly global audience with free-to-play Summoners War: Sky Arena, collecting revenue in 234 countries and dependent territories and hitting 116 million total downloads, showing no signs of slowing down. The game also reached the top 10 in game sales in 132 countries and dependent territories, 87 of which hit the top number one spot in sales.
“With $2 billion in revenue, Summoners War: Sky Arena remains a major force in mobile gaming thanks to our constant flow of content updates from our dedicated developer team, but most importantly, due to our never-resting fans who support our game with nearly unrivaled fandom and competitive spirit,” said the President of GAMEVIL Com2uS, Kyu Lee. “We’re also taking this momentum by the reins and charging forward with some huge IP expansion projects that we can’t wait to share more details about throughout the year.”
The Summoners War IP is also expanding this year with the impending release of Summoners War: Legacy, a full comic book series being created in tandem with Skybound Entertainment and Image Comics, and an upcoming Summoners War MMORPG. Esports remain a priority for Com2uS, as well and the Summoners War World Arena Championship series, which is returning this fall as a fully virtual event and with another massive prize pool.
