Plague Inc's 2014 Report Card - Best Year Yet with 45 Million Infected!

2014 has been an incredible year, both for Plague Inc. and Ndemic Creations (I know I say this every year :P ).  It's been a year of significant growth as we infected new platforms, countries and lots of new players - as well as releasing a number of major game updates. 

  • A total of 45 million players have now been infected with Plague Inc. - that's over 0.6% of the global population!
  • We launched Plague Inc: Evolved for PC and Mac in Steam Early Access
  • We partnered with the summer blockbuster movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and released a major 'Simian Flu' update for Plague Inc.
  • Plague Inc. was one of the very top games of the App Store worldwide in 2014

None of this would have been possible without the support of all the people who play my little game. Thank you so, so much.

Read on for a list of notable events that happened in 2014, some numbers on how Plague Inc. has done and a look ahead to what's planned in 2015…

How did Plague Inc. do?

For the third year in a row, Plague Inc. was one of the best selling mobile games worldwide (and it had a great first year for PC and Mac!).

On iOS in 2014, Plague Inc. was:

  • ​The 3rd most popular paid game in the US (up from #5 last year!)
  • The most popular paid app in China and France
  • One of the top ten most popular apps in Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the UK

Although there aren't concrete figures shown for Android, it continues to do extremely well there also!

Plague Inc: Evolved has also had a hugely successful first year on Steam for PC and Mac - selling over 100,000 units in its first month alone. We will be announcing a big milestone shortly... :)

As mentioned above - this is only possible thanks to the support of millions and millions of players who recommend the game to their friends. Thank you!
