You havenâ€™t thought about Temple Run in a little bit. Thatâ€™s ok, we havenâ€™t either. This megahit had its time in the sun, and barring a â€śTemple Run 3,â€ť thereâ€™s not much reason to think weâ€™ll see it at the top of the App Store again any time soon.
But that doesnâ€™t mean it hasnâ€™t been accruing downloads all this time.
Imangi Studios has just announced that the game has been downloaded 1 billion times. To put that into perspective, there are 7.2 billion people on Earth. A billion downloads means one for every 7 people.
Thatâ€™s a lot of running.
â€śHavingÂ Temple RunÂ reach the one billion downloads mark is a milestone we couldnâ€™t have imagined when we first started out,â€ť said Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi Studios in todayâ€™s press release. â€śWeâ€™re incredibly grateful to all theÂ Temple RunÂ players and our wonderful team. We look forward to continuing to grow theÂ Temple RunÂ franchise, as well as creating additional innovative games.â€ť
While thereâ€™s no word on what theyâ€™re working on currently, Gamezebo was told by a press representative that theyâ€™re â€śhard at work on the next runaway success.â€ť I suppose itâ€™s only a matter of time until we see what theyâ€™re cooking up next.
