Temple Run 2 Downloads Break Mobile Game Records

By: Sean Patterson - February 1, 2013

Imangi Studios, the developer behind the popular Temple Run games, this week announced that Temple Run 2 has broken mobile download records. The title, released on January 17, has been downloaded over 50 million times in only 13 days on iOS, Android, and Kindle devices. The previous record holder was Angry Birds Space, which reached 50 million downloads in 35 days.

Imangi claims that Temple Run 2 saw over six million downloads in just its first 24 hours on Apple’s App Store. The original Temple Run has seen over 170 million downloads.

β€œTemple Run has evolved into something so much bigger than us,” said Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi. β€œThe game has performed beyond our wildest dreams, and we are thrilled that gamers and fans have embraced Temple Run 2 in such a short period of time.”

Much like Angry Birds before it, Imangi is capitalizing on the success of the Temple Run series with merchandise. Temple Run apparel, comics, and board games can be bought in addition to the mobile games.
