Okay, Marvel: Contest of Champions Has Made Too Much Money
Free-to-play games are no joke.
Want to hear something absolutely crazy? Marvel: Contest of Champions is a free-to-play game that's made its creator Kabam over $100,000,000 so far, all from in-app purchases. Remember that the next time anyone tells you that the free-to-play model isn't sustainable.
The number stems from only 40,000,000 downloads, which is still a ridiculously high number, but just think about how many of those individual players have dropped cash on the free to play title. It's really not that exciting of a game, to be honest, but the Marvel name carries weight, and MOBAs are always hot.
But $100,000,000 made from just this one game? That's totally crazy!
