Facebook's strategy for Instant Games, Ilkka Paananen on Supercell's success, and EA's mobile revenues take a hit

Facebook's strategy for Instant Games, Ilkka Paananen on Supercell's success, and EA's mobile revenues take a hit

We are deep into financials season, the most enjoyable time of the year when publicly-listed mobile games studios declare how much revenue they've generated, and we pore over it in search of interesting information.

Of particular interest to our readers was a dip in EA's revenues, which led to our article on the subject being the most read of last week.

Second on our Hot Five is a talk from Supercell CEO Ilkka Paananen on the success of the developer, along with some interesting stats on just how well it's really doing.

Influencers, Instant Games and implications

Third up is a look at MZ's most recent influencer campaign for Final Fantasy XV: A New Empire with Instagram star Alexis Ren, who has scored millions of views for the game's trailers.

And finally, we look back on Facebook Instant Game's first year to work out where it's heading, and Ukranian developer Elyland gets into trouble with Niantic for similarities between Draconius Go and Pokemon GO.
