Niantic’s Pokemon Go has passed 650 million downloads in well under a year. The new download stat was shared at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco and it’s up significantly from the 500 million downloads announced in September.
Due to its impressive early performance, Pokemon Go was the most-downloaded app on iTunes in 2016. Large updates have kept the game alive, although its initial popularity has certainly died down.
Niantic says users have walked a total of 5.4 billion miles looking for Pokemon to capture in the real world.
