Clash of Clans breaks $4 billion, PUBG Corp drops Epic lawsuit, and indies rocked by Google Play download woes

Supercell’s Clash of Clans has broken $4 billion in revenues on iOS since its launch back in 2012, which generated enough buzz to send the news straight to the top of our illustrious Hot Five.

The data comes courtesy of App Annie, who had a peek at the past 10 years of iOS to derive various forms of data. One of the biggest being that Clash of Clans has grossed the most revenue out of any game or app.

Second up, PUBG Corp decided to end its lawsuit against Epic Games that alleged PUBG had its copyright infringed by Fortnite. 

Google, Diamond Diaries Saga, and Game of Thrones

Elsewhere, a host of indie developers have been hit with a drastic drop in installs on Google Play following recent algorithm changes from Google. 

Following on is the news that Candy Crush dev King launched a new IP, Diamond Diaries Saga, on iOS and Android. Finishing up the list is a study that showed Fortnite Mobile to have five times the revenue of PUBG, but half the downloads.
