Temple Run 2 Hits 50 Million Downloads in 2 Weeks, All Time Record
Imangi Studios has to be thrilled with what could end up an iconic franchise. The original Temple Run was also successful, notching over 170 million downloads to date.
"Temple Run has evolved into something so much bigger than us," says Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi. "The game has performed beyond our wildest dreams, and we are thrilled that gamers and fans have embraced Temple Run 2 in such a short period of time."
Perhaps taking a cue from Rovio and its wildly popular Angry Bird series, Imangi Studios isn't just focused on mobile games revenue. Temple Run has expanded to include apparel with JEM sportswear, it's available in digital comic form through Ape Entertainment, and it's featured on card and board games with Spin Master, to name a few of the licensing partnerships.
