Wednesday, 15th May 2013 12:24 GMT By Dave Cook

Gameloft has released its Q1 financial report, signalling a year-on-year sales increase of 21%, totalling €54.2 million.

The report was sent to VG247 this afternoon, and confirmed that Gameloft’s Q1 sales on smartphones and tablets rose by 71% year-on-year, and made up 60% of the company’s total sales, compared to 43% in the same period last year.

Free-to-play has proven to be a big win for Gameloft, as 67% of the company’s total smartphone sales came from in-app purchases. The report cited Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, World at Arms, My Little Pony, Ice Age Village, Order & Chaos Online, Gangstar Rio: City of Saints and Asphalt 7: Heat as key contributors.

New releases Dungeon Hunter 4, Iron Man 3 and Order & Chaos Duels were also name-dropped as strong releases in 2013 so far.

Gameloft’s next financial report will drop July 25, 2013.

    I can’t help but think that F2P will die just as suddenly as Wii did once that same group of dabblers gets bored with it. The only reason they’re seeing success now, is due to so many people getting new smart phones for the first time. Once those people start taking them for granted, they’ll stop downloading these F2P games overnight. I’m already at that point personally.
