The Sims Mobile debuted globally in March of this year and quickly caught the attention of fans of the franchise and many other players. Its success has been such that it has even generated millions of income for Electronic Arts.
According to a recent report from Sensor Tower, in its first 4 months on the market, The Sims Mobile generated more than $15 million for Electronic Arts. Curiously, 59% of all income earned comes from the United States, while 8% come from the United Kingdom. At the moment it is unknown how much it has generated in other countries.
Now, The Sims Mobile is still far from being the biggest success of Electronic Arts in the mobile market. Interestingly, since its debut it has achieved less revenue than The Sims FreePlay, a title that debuted in 2011. While there is no exact data, the source indicates that in June The Sims Mobile was the eighth title of EA for mobiles that generated more money, while that The Sims FreePlay obtained the third position.
Like other installments of the saga, The Sims Mobile is a life simulator in which players must create Sims and help them lead the best life possible. This mobile experience is notable for presenting multiplayer elements and for having similar mechanics to those of its PC counterpart.
