The game swung into early access at the end of March before going onto to surpass one million downloads in its first week of release alone. Since then that number has been estimated to have grown to 1.3 million.
The most amount of spending originated from the US which accounted for approximately $1.1 million of the overall figure or 73 per cent. Britain claimed second position at a much lower rate of five per cent or $75,000 in gross earnings.
$50,000 a day
An average player has spent $1.20 per install while Blades has accumulated an average of $50,000 since launch.
For comparison, Bethesda’s previous mobile entry Fallout Shelter made $8.7 million in its first month but unlike Blades the title was given an immediate full release.
In its first three years on the market, Fallout Shelter brought in $93 million from player spending.
