In June of last year, Epic Games reported that it had made more than $10 million from the sale of Infinity Blade on iOS devices. Now, with the addition of Infinity Blade II to the roster, which Epic says has made more than $5 million since it was introduced at the beginning of December, the Infinity Blade franchise has passed more than $30 million in total revenue.
Epic Games, Inc. and its award-winning Salt Lake City-based development studio, ChAIR Entertainment, today announced that earnings from ChAIR's blockbuster Infinity Blade video game franchise have eclipsed $30 million in just one year since the introduction of the original game. One of the most popular gaming franchises to be launched on the App Store, the award-winning series has also created significant licensing interest in the underlying Unreal Engine 3 technology from developers worldwide.
Further fueling franchise momentum is the recent release of Infinity Blade II, which has seen net earnings in excess of $5 million in just one month since release on Dec. 1, 2011, a mark which took the original title three months to achieve. Infinity Blade II is on pace to exceed the record success of the original Infinity Blade game, which has grossed more than $23 million to date.
Infinity Blade II is a universal app, available for $6.99 on the App Store. [Direct Link]

Maybe some of the folks from the "Tim Cook Stock Bonus" thread should hop over here and tell us why no game deserves to earn $30M in revenue and that how this is hurting the little guys in America.
Seriously, good for these guys -- they made a great and beautiful game and deserve it for all their hard work.
Agreed. But no matter how great powerful handheld devices get, there will always be much more gaming power available on the desktop computer or a dedicated gaming consol. I hope the gaming industry doesn't stop making games that take full advantage of that power as well.
Seems to me like they don't need to pay attention.
Congrats to Chair though. It's not my kind of game at all but it's great seeing such a small studio doing so well.
You're playing it wrong.
