Clash of Clans, the popular strategy game for mobile recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and a lot of players wonder how long the game will keep going. Clash of Clans has been around for more than a decade now and there are rumors about it shutting down almost every year. Players wonder whether 2023 will be the last year of Clash of Clans or not.
The game won’t shut down.
Clash of Clans is the highest-grossing game of Supercell and they are going to milk it as long as they can. The game still has over 76 million users as reported by Business of Apps. Clash of Clans is only one of the few mobile games to cross revenue of $1 Billion. Clash of Clans had a revenue drop in recent years though it is still one of the most grossing games on the Google Play store.
The game usually makes somewhere between 400 to 500 million dollars every year. The revenue was boosted by another 100 million dollars in 2019 when the Gold Pass was added. Clash of Clans developers actively update the game with new features.
Darian, Clash of Clans’ manager was asked whether the game will ever shut down and he said as long as the players keep playing the gaming will keep on going. We don’t see Clash of Clans going anywhere at least for the next 10 years. The game is still very famous to date.
There has been an influx of strategy games on the Google Play Store. In recent years, a lot of strategy games have been released on both Apple and Google stores. Though this increase has not done any damage to the player base of Clash of Clans. The game is still seeing a steady increase in active players every year.
According to Business of Apps, Clash of Clans had 29 million active users in 2014. The number then increased to 37 million in 2015, 55 million in 2016, and 76 million in 2021. The current number of annual users is greater than 76 million in 2023.
Where is the game most played?
Clash of Clans is very popular in the United States with about 19 percent of players from the said country. About 17 percent of the players are from Turkey, China, Germany, and Russia. The game is very popular in Asian countries too with India and the Philippines having a good number of Clash of Clans players.
Clash of Clans is a game still going strong in the year 2023 only because the developers at Supercell are super dedicated to bringing new stuff to the game almost every 2 months. We see multiple updates to the game every year. Recently, Town Hall 15 was added which brought a new defense and a troop with it. Town Hall 15 opened a lot of new possibilities for new feature additions to the game.
Clash of Clans is a never-ending game and the developers at the game headquarters know how to keep their players engaged in the game. We have three different villages in the game now while the game started with only one village in 2012. We have Builder Base, Capital Hall, and Home Village. The game is not going anywhere for at least another 10 years so keep on playing and enjoy your time in this awesome strategy game.
