Did the Pokémon Go fever finally break?
After its July 6 release, Pokémon Go quickly rocketed to the top of the charts as millions of users rushed to catch ’em all. But after 74 days as the top-grossing app in the App Store, it was unseated by strategy game Clash Royale.
According to VentureBeat, a big update for Clash Royale may be at play here, leaving a window of opportunity open for Pokémon Go to stage a comeback in the coming weeks. Still, its 74-day streak puts it in the hall of fame for successful apps, bested only by Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga in terms of consecutive days as the top-grossing game. And Clash Royale’s developers no doubt appreciate the chance to topple Niantic, since Pokémon Go edged Clash Royale out as the fastest game to No. 1 back in July.
At least we all have our buddies with us in this tough time.
