The mobile gaming industry certainly lacks reputed studios when compared to their PC and Console counterparts. Most of it is because of all the shovelware that iOS and Andriod App Stores refuse to regulate. However, thanks to powerful chipsets and more people embracing smartphones by the day we now have some good and competent companies. Clash Royale developer Supercell is one of them. The studio has been at the forefront of mobile gaming since its inception. Starting by publishing and developing Hay Day, a farm sim game, the studio went on to make a game like Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, and Boom Beach.
Clash Royale came as a spin-off of the Clash of Clans IP. The studio released the game globally on 2 March 2016 after spending some time in development. And the reception, true to the classic Supercell games, was highly positive. The game was innovative in its design, using card and tower defense mechanics as its gameplay loop. It was an experiment on Supercell’s part that turned out more than successful. But how long can a game run successfully? Recently, there have been rumors about it shutting down in 2023. So, is it true? Let’s find out!!
Is Clash Royale Shutting Down in 2023?
It is not an easy task to keep supporting a game if the player base is more or less dead. But, in the case of Clash Royale, that is not the case. The game keeps growing while earning obscene amounts of revenue from the microtransactions it has. Supercell has perfected the formula of player retention. Just take a look at Clash of Clans or Hay Day for that matter.
And, stating the obvious, No, Supercell is not going to end support for Clash Royale. Doing so would mean studio suicide. That game prints money for Tencent and Supercell while costing very little in terms of development. Clash Royale turns the balance sheet of both companies green. To shut it down, it would need to bleed the accounts dry of Supercell. Fortunately, it doesn’t. Besides the game receives continuous content rollout from the devs, so they plan to keep the game running as long as it prints green.
