"A landmark year"

"Reaching 500 million lifetime downloads was a great way to kickstart what is shaping up to be a landmark year for TapNation," said TapNation CEO Hervé Montoute.

"Three years ago we turned an idea into a project, now it has become a real success. We are delighted to be able to work with such very talented hyper and hybrid casual studios, a huge thank you and congrats to everyone who made it possible to reach this milestone. We are excited for what is to come!"

Looking forward, TapNation has stated that it will "further grow" its profile in the mobile games industry, such as through partnerships with new studios. Across its three year history, TapNation has partnered with over 100 studios worldwide.

In addition to further partnerships, TapNation plans to scale its team, which currently sits at 50 employees, with plans of doubling by the end of 2022.

Earlier this month, AppQuantum passed the 100 million downloads milestone, with Idle merge game Gold and Goblins as its most downloaded.
