SuperData has released its latest industry report, and according to the number crunching, Hearthstone brings in around $20 million on a monthly basis.

The report delves into the card game genre, and according to the firm, it expects the genre’s revenue as a whole to grow a “modest 5%” by 2018.

The firm said with Hearthstone heightening “consumer expectations for digital card games,” publishers now need to account for the fact that Hearthstone considered an entry point into the genre.

“Hearthstone proves traditional CCG players want to game on the go, as monthly revenue for Hearthstone jumped 31% when the game became available on smartphones,” stated the report.

“Thanks to the rise of large-screen smartphones and “phablets,” more smartphones now have the screen space to comfortably fit the detailed user interfaces of more complex card games.”

Activision noted in its Q2 financial report earlier this month Hearthstone, along with Heroes of the Storm and Destiny, brought in over $1.25 billion in estimated revenues, combined.

The publisher also said with the release of Hearthstone: Blackrock Mountain back in April key engagement metrics nearly doubled year-over-year, thanks to the new content along with the release on iOS and Android platforms.

Hearthstone’s next expansion, The Grand Tournament, is slated for release later this month.
