Well, how well do you know about Supercell? If not much, we have compiled all you need to know about Supercell’s net worth in 2021, wiki and complete details. Well, if you’re all set, here is what we know about Supercell to date.
Supercell was founded in 2010 by Ilkka Paananen, Mikko Kodisoja, Niko Derome, Visa Forsten, Lassi Leppinen, and Petri Styrman. Ikka had previously served as the CEO of the mobile game company, Sumea which Mikko co-founded in 1999. The company started its operations in the city of Espoo in Finland. Ikka and Mikko also invested 250,000 euros in the company. Supercell released its first game, Gunshine.net which could be played on a browser.
Its services were stopped the following year in 2012. In 2012, Supercell released its second game, “Pets vs Orcs” which was also its first mobile game. The aforementioned game was available for download for only a couple of months. In the same year, it released the game, “Battle Buddies” in various countries but it was discontinued only a few months later.
The game was discontinued because it didn’t bring in much revenue for Supercell. However, it’s worth being mentioned here that the game was positively received by the critics.
In 2012, it released the massively popular mobile farming game, “Hay Day”. The game was initially released for iOS users and later for android users in 2013. The game was an enormous success, to say the least, and it was the year’s fourth highest game in terms of revenue generated. In August of 2012, it released the mobile strategy video game, “Clash of Clans” for iOS users and in October of 2013 for Android users. The game was both critically and commercially well-received.
It is still one of the most popular games available today. In 2014, Supercell released the real-time strategy game, “Boom Beach” which received mixed reviews from critics. However, the game is available even today. Supercell then released “Spooky Pop” and “Smash Land” in 2014 and 2015 respectively but they weren’t successful. In 2016, it released the real-time strategy game, “Clash Royale” which turned out to be a massive success once again.
The company earned close to $1 billion within a year of the game’s release. In 2016, Tencent Holdings Ltd. bought an 81.4% stake in the company. In 2018, it released the game, “Brawl Stars” which is available even today. The company released “Rush Wars” and “Hay Day Pop” in 2019 and 2020 respectively, but both of the games weren’t successful.
