There are thousands of games in the App Store, but not many that can boast having $10 million in earnings. That is the case with Epic’s Infinity Blade game, which recently hit this milestone, according to touchArcade. The universal game, which arrived for iOS in 2010, was created by Chair Entertainment. Infinity Blade, which is considered the flagship game for Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 platform, hasn’t reach this level of success simply because the game is good. Rather, it is backed up by “a heck of a lot of external support from two well-known entities: Epic and Chair.” As touchArcade states:
Epic released this number for a reason: it wants me, you, and every developer out there to know that there’s a market for core, Unreal Engine 3-powered titles out there. Mark Rein, Epic VP and co-founder, says in statement that Epic is “looking forward to our licensees achieving spectacular results of their own,” as if this perfect storm isn’t so perfect.Infinity Blade, which was recently updated to include a new level of gameplay, is available in the App Store for $5.99 for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad.
