It’s a really good time to be a Facebook game developer. Executives from Facebook announced that game developers generated around $2.8 billion in revenue last year.
Sean Ryan, Facebook’s Director of Game Partnerships stated, “Anywhere in the games business we are investing heavily.” Ryan wants to get more developers on board. The statistics show that over 250 million people play games on Facebook each month, and that 20% of all Facebook desktop users play games daily on Facebook.
Just last month alone, Facebook redirected 263 million clicks to Apple’s App Store and Android’s Google Play store. Another interesting fact is that since last year, game installations have increased by 75%. Over 200 games on Facebook now each have over 1 million monthly active users. There has been a 24% increase of players who pay to play games on Facebook compared to last year and I am sure this will only grow from here.
