Clash of Clans and Hay generate $179 million in first quarter of 2013

Supercell’s astronomic growth shows no sign of abating as it reveals it is now making $2.4 million a day from just two games.

As reported by Forbes, last year the Finland-based free-to-play developer grossed $100 million from Clash of Clans and Hay Day, but this year it has already nearly doubled its total revenue for 2012 by making $179 million in just the first quarter.

After Apple took its share, the company still took away $104 million.

The developer also recently raised between $100m-to-$150m in a funding round, valuing the company near $800 million.

The amount of revenue generated through its titles is up significantly from January, when the studio announced it was raking in $1 million a day. The numbers also put Supercell in close company with GungHo’s hugely popular Puzzle & Dragons, which is believed to be making the studio $2 million a day.

Supercell was only formed in 2010 in Espoo before later moving to Helsinki, and it has not looked back since.
