In comparison to previous Niantic titles, however, Pikmin Bloom is trailing behind.

Within its first two weeks, Pokémon Go had generated over 75 million downloads and accumulated approximately $116.4 million in consumer spending following its launch on selected countries in July 2016.

Furthermore, Harry Potter Wizards Unite was downloaded 12.4 million times and generated almost $8 million in its first two weeks after its official launch in June 2019.

Wizards Unite had a much stronger launch than Pikmin Bloom, however, Niantic revealed earlier this month that due to its poor performance it will be shutting down the title on January 31st, 2022.
