“Puzzles & Spells” Surpasses “Wizards Unite” in Revenue After Just Four Months
It hasn’t been very long since Zynga announced the release of Harry Potter: Puzzles & Spells, a match-three mobile game, but it has already surpassed the revenue brought in by Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, released back in 2019!
We love a good Potter video game around here, so we’re not too surprised that fans are loving Puzzles & Spells. Still, a report from PocketGamer.biz illustrates just how much more fans are spending on the match-three game. With data from Sensor Tower, PocketGamer.biz found out that Puzzles & Spells has earned “$39.7 million in gross revenue” with “15 million lifetime installs.”
Wizards Unite’s downloads, however, are still slightly higher overall, at 19.6 million installs, with 14.8 million of that number originating from the game’s first month. Adding in the $12.3 million of revenue that was made during the same duration, it shows a significant drop in player interest.
Player spending on Puzzles & Spells “has been consistently on the rise each month since September 2020,” signaling that it is remaining popular. Puzzles & Spells has also recently launched in South Korea, so it could see those numbers grow even more.
Interestingly enough, the Harry Potter mobile game that has brought in the most revenue is Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, according to PocketGamer.biz. (It is also the oldest of the three games.)
Jam City’s Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery continues to be the gold standard for the franchise, accumulating £271.2 million in revenue and 77.8 million downloads to-date [sic]. Launched globally in April 2018, the RPG mobile title conjured up $32.6 million and 20.5 million installs in its first 30 days.
