Gotta catch 'em all

Over half of those installs came in the first two months of release, with Niantic celebrating 500 million downloads in September 2016.

The location-based augmented reality title is estimated to be on track to crack $3 billion in in-app purchase revenue this year, according to Sensor Tower.

Currently, Pokemon Go is thought to have generated $2.65 billion worldwide. This figure doesn't include money made from real-world events and sponsored locations, however.
