The Witcher: Monster Slayer Brought in Over $500K in One Week

According to Sensor Tower's estimates, within a week of its release The Witcher: Monster Slayer achieved a revenue of over $500 thousand and was downloaded at least a million times. Will the creators manage to maintain the game's popularity?

The Witcher: Monster Slayer is becoming more and more successful. Yesterday, we reported that the mobile game from Spokko has been downloaded one million times on Google Play store alone. And according to estimates by the web analytics company Sensor Tower, provided by Pocketgamer, the game generated $534 thousand in revenue in just one week after release. The game is most often downloaded in Poland, but US users spent the most on microtransactions.

At the beginning, the game struggled with various technical problems, especially concerning the operation of servers. Users could not join the game and long technical breaks appeared. However, the developers quickly dealt with the bugs, and now Monster Slayer seems to be doing great.

It is worth noting, that Minecraft Earth - a mobile game whose servers were recently shut down indefinitely, also relied on augmented reality and for over a year it hasn't made as much as the mobile The Witcher in a week. However, the results achieved by Pokemon GO are still far ahead - Niantic's game was downloaded more than 10 million times during the first week. Now the most important task for the devs at Spokko is to maintain the popularity of the game. Whether they will succeed, we will see in the near future.

For now The Witcher: Monster Slayer is successful and is appreciated by the players. Currently, the game has an average rating of 4.2/5 (based on 38,500 reviews). And how much would you give it?
