InnoGames proves shift to mobile is working with revenues up 25% in 2016

Hamburg-based developer InnoGames increased revenues by 25% and surpassed $139 million in revenues in 2016.

The developer stated that more than half of all new registrations for its games came from mobile devices. Its mobile revenues also increased 68% year-on-year, though the studio did not break out specific numbers.

The developer's success comes from its continued growth and live ops of its long-running titles such as Forge of Empires. Its portfolio of six games saw a combined total of 600 million hours of playtime in 2016 alone.

Changing focus

"Since we founded the company in 2007, InnoGames was able to profitably grow each and every year," said InnoGames CEO Hendrik Klindworth.

"2016 has been the most successful year in our company's history, with the results surpassing our own very ambitious goals.

"As InnoGames turns 10 this year, our focus is on our upcoming mobile-only titles and sustainable growth. All in all, we plan to fill 50 new job positions in our offices in Hamburg and Düsseldorf this year."

InnoGames saw an investment of $100 million from ESL owner MTG in October 2016. It plans to use the money to continue its shift into a mobile-only developer.
