Honor of Kings makes $1.9 billion, Supercell invests in Trailmix, and Will Luton on emotional intelligence

We all know that Honor of Kings makes a boatload of cash, but Superdata Research has now suggested that it made $1.9 billion in 2017 alone.

Shocked? The rest of our readers were too apparently, which may explain why our article on Superdata's study of the top grossing games on 2017 shot to the top of our most read articles list.

Second on our Hot Five is the news that Supercell has invested $4.2 million in London-based mobile games start-up Trailmix, which is headed up by two former King London staff and wants to focus on narrative-led free-to-play games.

Emotions, investment and recruitment

Third up, Rovio London product lead Will Luton stops by to tell us all about emotional intelligence and how increasing your EQ can lead to being a better team member.

And finally, Playtika opens up a $400 million investment arm for already profitable businesses and Game of War developer MZ is looking for 70 new employees across a range of disciplines.
