Yodo1 reaches 100 million players thanks to Chinese edition of Cut the Rope 2
After a successful end to 2013, mobile games publisher Yodo1 has announced a new player milestone, as its catalog of titles has passed 100 million players worldwide. Yodo1 attributes the recent growth to the launch of the Chinese edition of Cut the Rope 2, which was co-developed with Zeptolab. According to Yodo1, the game was downloaded about 2 million times on iOS within the first 10 days on the market in China.
The Chinese edition of Cut the Rope 2 is expected to launch on Android later this month, with Yodo1 expecting at least 20 million additional downloads before the end of February.
In addition to this player milestone, Yodo1 has announced upcoming celebrations for the Chinese New Year at the end of January. The company will be added Chinese New Year themed updates to many of its games, including Year of the Horse-themed cars in the Chinese edition of Cie Games’ Car Town Streets.
Yodo1 raised $11 million in Series B funding late last year, which will help the com pay expand its global publishing efforts. The company expanded its publishing business in August 2013, with Yodo1 now focusing on publishing games in Japan and Korea, as well as China.
