Game News Harry Potter: absolutely magical income on mobile, time to take stock

We never really doubted the economic potential of Harry Potter: whether through books or cinema, the English brought a lot to its creators. The video game does not cut it and today we have some gargantuan data concerning the titles of the mobile sector.

You are a rich wizard, Harry

Harry Potter is definitely one of pop culture’s most prolific franchises. The wizard would have made its creator, JK Rowling, “richer than the Queen of England” through the monstrous success of novels, films, derived products galore… or even video games. If multiple titles rocked the childhood of more than one player decades ago, we must not forget the mobile games which bring in much more than you think.

So to speak, the very serious site Sensor Tower declares that to date, Harry Potter mobile games have crossed the symbolic threshold of one billion dollars in revenue. It’s colossal yes, and the lion’s share goes to iOS players since 66% of revenue comes from the AppStore (or 683 million dollars). Android is just behind with 33% of revenue, which corresponds to $342.5 million spent on the Play Store.

Muggles favorite pastime

If you are wondering which games are in question, a few are rightly mentioned: the highest paying title is Harry Potter: Hogwarts Secret, released in 2018 and developed by Jam City. The setting takes place between Harry’s birth and his arrival at Hogwarts and players can create their wizard or witch and take lessons in magic. The app has generated over $400 million in revenue.

In second place are NetEase and Harry Potter: Magic Emerges. The Chinese giant has done well since this mixture of role-playing and card games has brought in $358 million since its arrival in 2021 alone. Finallythe bronze medal goes to Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, landed in 2020 and signed Zynga. It’s a $218 million puzzle game.

Finally, we learn that Harry Potter games have been installed more than 156 million times worldwide on mobiles: the USA spent the most with 375 million dollars, followed by China (324 million dollars) and finally Germany (51.6 million dollars). That in fact, crowns.
