Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery grosses $110m in first year

Mobile RPG becomes most successful game from Jam City

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has grossed $110 million worldwide revenue in its first year, according to Sensor Tower Store Intelligence.

Launched in April 2018, it has become the most profitable title for publisher Jam City, accounting for roughly 30% of all its revenue across Google Play and the App Store.

Users in North America represented 48% of the revenue, generating approximately $52.8 million,

Germany and the UK ranked second and third, with $10 million and $9.2 million respectively.

Globally, the game has racked up nearly 45 million downloads. Unsurprisingly, the US leads with around 10 million, followed by France and the UK with 2.9 million and 2.8 million respectively.

"Warner Bros., which recently revealed more on its location-based AR game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, has undoubtedly been keeping a close eye on the performance of Hogwarts Mystery," said Randy Nelson, head of mobile insights at Sensor Tower.

"Despite being substantially different in terms of core gameplay... both games rely on the Harry Potter fan base's willingness to engage with the franchise on mobile devices. Based on what we've seen from Hogwarts Mystery to date, the prospects for both games look bright indeed."
