Plague Inc.'s 2017-2018 report card: over 100 million infected!

Can you believe that it’s been five and a half years since Plague Inc. first launched? It’s been such an incredible half decade, and I couldn't be more proud of what we’ve achieved over that time. Some of the statistics this year have been mind blowing - I couldn't have imagined the game attaining such heights when I first set out to make it.

2017 has been especially busy for us. From a hectic well organised office relocation - which saw new members join the team - to a plethora of Plague Inc. updates, patches, content drops and launches - we have all been working flat out at Office Zero.  As I do every year, I’ve got a whole load of key milestones to dispense:

  • Over 100 million players have now been infected with Plague Inc. worldwide! That’s 1.3% of the world population!
  • Plague inc. remains (for the sixth year running) one of the most popular paid apps on iOS (ranked 4th in the USA for 2017)
  • Plague Inc: The Board Game has sold through two production runs since hitting retail - people are picking copies up faster than we can make them (third production run coming soon!)
  • We were recognised by the Sunday Times as one of the top 100 fastest growing Exporting companies in the UK (94th to be exact!)
  • Fun fact - Players have wiped out earth 1,530,597,131 times, infecting 13,535,648,426,642,177,590 people in the process (as of October 2017)!

Thank you everyone that's played our games for making this all possible!

This year saw the launch of our Mad Cow Disease Update, with three all new scenarios to play through.
