Infinity Blade for iOS tops console titles as most profitable Epic Games franchise ever

Infinity Blade Epic Games Profit

On Wednesday during the Game Developers Conference in Taipei, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney revealed that the company’s iOS franchise Infinity Blade is more profitable than even its biggest console game. “The most profitable game we’ve ever made, in terms of man years invested versus revenue, is actually Infinity Blade,” Sweeney said. “It’s more profitable than Gears of War.” This of course relates to profit versus investment and not the total profit Epic has earned from Infinity Blade. The original game grossed more than $1.6 million in its first four days of availability, while the sequel made over $5 million in its first month on the App Store. The mobile franchise went on to surpass $30 million in revenue this past January.
