The new Fallout mobile game is more popular than Candy Crush Saga

Perhaps the most surprising announcement at Bethesda’s first E3 press conference earlier this week was a Fallout-themed mobile app known as Fallout Shelter. The app, which launched on iOS shortly after the announcement and is expected to hit Android soon, looked like a fun way to distract yourself while waiting for Fallout 4. However, it appears as though the game could be a potential cash cow for Bethesda, as just three days after its release, the app has surpassed Candy Crush Saga in popularity. 

It was not long ago that Bethesda unveiled Fallout 4 for PC and current-gen consoles. Along with it, the company also announced Fallout Shelter for iOS, with an Android version planned for later this year. While the game has been available for less than three days in the store, it has already managed to occupy third place in the UK and US App Store charts. According to GamesIndustry, the last time Candy Crush Saga wasn’t in the top three games in the UK and the US was way back in December 2012 and January 2013 respectively. Moreover, Fallout Shelter is also in the top 10 games list across most of Europe and is even the top free game in most countries around the world. Currently, the only games ahead of Fallout Shelter are Game of War- Fire Age and Clash of Clans. Being a free-to-play title like Candy Crush Saga, it is quite impossible to determine what revenue Bethesda is earning from Fallout Shelter but according to an earlier report, King was making a profit of $2 million daily at the start of this year; which is of course, across multiple platforms. Still, we might expect Bethesda to fit in the same bracket.
