This is a single insight from This Week in Apps #112 - The Race is On!. Check out the full article for more insights.


With April behind us, I crunched the numbers and ranked the highest earning games in the US, and to compare this list to last month's, you'll really have to squint.

Candy Crush was the highest earning game in the US in April, with $94M of net revenue, according to our estimates. That's a serious kaboodle higher than March's total. Or, 59% if you'd rather have real numbers as a comparison.

Roblox scored the #2 spot overall with $59M of net revenue, according to our estimates. This total is lower than March, which isn't all that surprising for the game that's been roaming so far this year. Yet, even when revenue drops, Roblox still remains at the top.

Call of Duty, which came in at #7, made its way back into the list with a serious increase in revenue in April, having nearly disappeared completely in March. And speaking of dropping off, Garena Free Fire didn't make the cut in April, which was a bit surprising. The popular title earned single-digit millions across both stores, which wasn't enough to bring it into the top 10.

Together, the highest-earning games raked in $331M of net revenue from the US in April, about 5% more than March's total. I expect to see more increases as advertisers learn to play in a post-ATT world.
