Clash of Clans dev reports $892M revenue year, new game coming

Finnish developer Supercell reported collecting $892 million in revenue during its 2013 fiscal year and is already looking ahead for its next project, according to Reuters.

Supercell, founded in 2010, is currently planning to launch its third game, a combat game set on a beach called Boom Beach, next month. Its first two games, strategy-focused Clash of Clans and farming experience Hay Day, have been well-received since their debut on the Apple App Store, earning Supercell $101 million in 2012.

The company reported that its annual earnings, before interest and taxes, grew to $464 million from $51 million reported in 2012.

Last October, Supercell announced Japanese technology and telecommunications company SoftBank purchased a 51 percent stake in the developer for 150 billion yen (about $3 billion).

Both Clash of Clans and Hay Day made their Android debut via Google Play last year, and Supercell says it plans to expand these games to Windows Phones in the future. Chief executive Ilkka Paananen stated in an earnings call that more games are coming from Supercell, with a "roadmap of three, four years of ideas" currently in place.

Earlier this week, an individual claiming to have hacked Clash of Clans said the game could be making Supercell $5.15 million per day.
