Epic's Infinity Blade turns over $1.6m in 5 days

Unreal engine game is fastest-grossing App ever

Infinity Blade, the Unreal engine-powered iOS game, has sold at least 274,000 copies in its first five days on sale, according to recent player counts on Apple's Game Center.

At $5.99 per copy, the sword-fighting app will thus have mustered over $1.64 million in sales for publisher Epic, whose studio Chair Entertainment created what is widely-hailed as one of the most technically impressive iOS titles to date.

This trumps the previous record for fastest-grossing App, held by the Chillingo-published title Cut The Rope, which turned over $1 million in its first ten days. However, the $0.99 title also boasted one million downloads over the same period.
