World’s hottest mobile developer sets sights on third hit game

Supercell Boom Beach Release Date

Supercell, the developer behind popular mobile games Clash of Clans and Hay Day that hauled in almost $900 million in revenue in 2013, is planning a new game for later this year, Reuters has learned. The new game is titled Boom Beach, and will let gamers fight some sort of battles on beaches, although not many details about it are available yet. Boom Beach is currently in testing and will be launched in March, likely for iOS and Android devices, as Supercell still doesn’t want to expand to Windows Phone yet.

Clash of Clans and Hay Day reached the top spot in the App Store in 137 and 96 countries, respectively, according to data provided in October by SoftBank, the Japanese giant that has a 51% stake in the Finnish gaming company.

In addition to Boom Beach, the company has other mobile games in the works for the coming years.

“There’s a roadmap of three, four years of ideas,” Supercell CEO Ilkka Paananen enigmatically told reporters, without sharing more details about the company’s plans.
