Pokemon GO Has Reportedly Made More Than $440 Million

Pokemon Go players gather at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia.

The Pokemon franchise revival has passed 180 million worldwide downloads on iOS and Android. Pokemon GO continues to generate more than 4 million dollars in revenue worldwide each day, all while the game has yet to be released in some of the biggest global markets like China and India.

That hasn't stopped Pokemon GO from remaining one of the premier revenue generators available in mobile gaming, however, and the game is also one of the strongest mobile app releases in general. According to analysis outlet SensorTower, Pokemon GO has pulled in more than $440 million, a number that is especially notable because the game hasn't even been out for two full months yet. This puts publisher Niantic's net revenue from the app at more than $308 million so far-a figure that has grown by more than $100 million since we last looked at the game's earnings back on August 5.

Pena Nieto: Trump proposals 'a real threat' for Mexico
If his goals in Mexico also included assuaging 55 million Hispanic-Americans who are not fond of Trump , he failed miserably. He has called them "rapists and murderers", and vowed to build a "big attractive wall" that "Mexico will pay for".

The success of "Pokemon Go" has surpassed some major Hollywood movie releases, he said. And while the game's userbase has dipped here in the United States, the average amount to time players use Pokemon Go per day still exceeds 30 minutes per day. Pokemon Go brought in more money than Star Trek Beyond, Independence Day: Resurgence, Ghostbusters, Warcraft and The Angry Birds Movie. On Sept. 6, the game will turn two months old and it's really wonderful how much it has already achieved. While the initial download of the app is free, "Pokemon Go" makes money through in-app purchases. Some reports point out that the popularity of the smartphone game is past its peak; however, Sensor Tower does not think so.

Of course, some summer blockbusters have topped the game's impressive total: "Finding Dory", "Captain America: Civil War", "The Secret Life of Pets", "Suicide Squad" and "X-Men: Apocalypse" all made more than $440 million worldwide.
