The players spent a lot of money at the big Pokémon GO Fest last weekend. According to current reports, it was approximately $ 17.5 million worldwide. This brings sales to $ 539 million this year.
As is well known, the big Pokémon GO Fest 2020 took place last weekend, in which numerous fans of the mobile game around the world took part. The community not only managed to activate the so-called hyper bonus and thus several events, but also spent a lot of money during this time.
According to a recent report from Sensor Tower, Pokémon GO raised approximately $ 17.5 million during the festival. The most successful day in this regard was Saturday with sales of $ 8.9 million. It was also the best earnings day for Pokémon GO since July 29, 2020, when it had $ 13.3 million in revenue. But the Sunday of this year's Pokémon GO Fest is also very positive at $ 8.6 million.
Much of the revenue for that day is certainly due to the sale of the special tickets for the Pokémon GO Festival. This was the only way for players to have full access to all extras, field research and bonuses. In addition, it can be assumed that the fans have bought some other in-game objects such as passports in the shop in order not to miss a raid if possible.
Pokémon GO's total revenue so far this year is now $ 539 million, including festival revenue. Since its launch a few years ago, it has even been more than $ 3.7 billion.
