Infinity Blade series grosses $30 million

Games in the Infinity Blade series have grossed over $30 million for publisher Epic Games.

The Unreal-powered iOS original, developed by Chair Entertainment and released in December 2010, brought in $23 million of the total, while Infinity Blade II has already grossed $5 million since its release last month. The official soundtrack, a digital novella, and the Infinity Blade X coin-op also played a part.

Epic Games president Mike Capps said: "The success of the Infinity Blade franchise is testament to our talented team who is devoted to making games we want to play, all while using Unreal Engine technology to redefine what is expected from games on iOS devices.

"We have so much more in store for players, and will continue to make great content for Apple's evolving platforms."
