Epic and ChAIR Entertainment have announced that earnings from the Infinity Blade franchise have hit more than $30 million.

It was also announced that ChAIR’s Infinity Blade II has earned over $5 million since its release on December 1, which took the original title three months to achieve. The original has also grossed over $23 million to date.

“The success of the Infinity Blade franchise is testament to our talented team who is devoted to making games we want to play, all while using Unreal Engine technology to redefine what is expected from games on iOS devices,” said Epic Games president Michael Capps.

“We have so much more in store for players, and will continue to make great content for Apple’s evolving platforms.”

Additional franchise extensions include Infinity Blade: Awakening, a digital novella from author Brandon Sanderson, an Infinity Blade: Original Soundtrack, and Infinity Blade FX, a big screen, coin-op version now featured in arcades nationwide.
