Fallout Shelter Daily Revenue Up 232% as Hype Continues

It was recently revealed that Fallout Shelter, Bethesda Game Studios’ free-to-play mobile title (which has long since moved to other platforms), has undergone an explosion in popularity since the successful television series dropped on April 10. Before the show debuted, Fallout Shelter was reportedly pulling in around $20,000 a day in revenue – but it’s now hitting as much as $80,000 a day as more players are finding their way into the charming and entertaining minigame.

One of the Best Fallout Games

Admittedly, Fallout Shelter should be classed as one of the best Fallout games ever made. It has been active for almost a decade and remains strong and pumped full of updates by Bethesda. The core gameplay loop sees players build their own vault in an undetermined location, constructing a series of rooms and facilities and managing residents over time. There are missions and excursions to lead, challenges to complete, and above all, the safety of the vault’s occupants to be guaranteed.

As it’s a free-to-play game, tens of millions of people have invested time into the Fallout Shelter ecosystem – and since Amazon’s television show debuted, that number has swollen. It was revealed recently by GamesIndustry.biz that downloads rose by 20% the day after the series was released on Prime Video.

Fallout Shelter is available on all platforms, but it started life as a mobile-exclusive game. It was ported to consoles in 2018 and is now a staple of the franchise. There are no expectations that Bethesda Game Studios will slow down on the constant development of the game anytime soon.
