Nobody is talking about it while Glu Games meanwhile reports the following Stats:

Quote:
Record Q1 non-GAAP revenues of $47.0 million, up 90% year-over-year and significantly exceeded guidance
Record Q1 GAAP revenues of $44.6 million
Record Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of $6.5 million also significantly exceeded guidance
2014 non-GAAP revenue guidance increased
Signed definitive agreement to acquire PlayFirst Inc., owner of Diner Dash franchise
Selected as first partner to bring film franchise James Bond: 007 to mobile gamers worldwide
Don`t assume that We (TA Forum) are actually representing the iTunes Store Economy at all since you would be shocked how much some Developer are actually earning with their Games while you don`t read anything about their Games on the Frontpage or here on the Forum besides the usual "The Game is bad/boring/Another Clone?!/..." Threads

Just to get a small compare shot:

Gameloft:

Quote:
Gameloft achieved consolidated sales of €56.2 million in the first quarter of 2014, up by 4%. On a constant-exchange-rate basis, the first-quarter growth was 12%.
EMEA represented 34% of first-quarter sales; North America, 29%; APAC, 20%; and LATAM, 18%.
King:

Quote:
The filing is accompanied by financial statements revealing that the company posted revenue of $1.88 billion in 2013, with net profit of $567 million. Candy Crush Saga is now looking at 93 million active daily users, with another 35 million on the company’s other games. Candy Crush also accounts for 78 percent of all spending in King games, meaning it must protect this house, etc.
Supercell:

Quote:
Finnish mobile game developer Supercell has reported revenue of $892 million for 2013, a significant gain on 2012′s revenue of $101 million. With just two games released (‘Clash of Clans‘ and ‘Hay Day‘), Supercell has seemingly cracked the winning formula in the mobile space.
DeNa/Mobage:

Quote:
TOKYO, JAPAN - February 5, 2014 - DeNA Co., Ltd. (Tokyo: 2432), the global leader in mobile Internet services, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. DeNA reported quarterly revenue of 41.7 billion yen (408 million* USD), 20 percent lower than the same quarter last year, and operating profit of 11.4 billion yen (112 million* USD), 42 percent lower than the same quarter of the previous year.
"DeNA is committed to its large-scale game production strategy for both the app and browser markets," said Isao Moriyasu, President and CEO of DeNA. "By establishing improved development processes, we have scaled our ability to deliver numerous high-quality games each quarter. We're seeing encouraging signs from many of our games and new services in the mobile app market, and it remains an exciting opportunity for growth for our company."

Hopefully they don't keep it even at least somewhat the same as B&G.
