The “Store Escape”: Liberating Mobile Games Through Cost-Efficient Cloud Streaming

May 13, 2024

For years, mobile game publishers have been confined to the app store ecosystems, subjecting them to stringent policies, high commission fees, and limited control over the user experience. This traditional distribution model has capped revenue potential and hindered innovation. However, a disruptive solution emerges through our cloud streaming technology, empowering publishers to break free from these constraints and maximize their earnings.

User Metrics and Cost Projections

To illustrate the profound impact of our solution, let’s consider the following user metrics and cost projections for a hypothetical publisher, GameCorp:

User Metrics:

Average Daily Users3,000,000
Average Playtime per User per Day20 minutes (0.33 hours)
Total User Hours per Month29,700,000

Streaming Cost Projections:

Cost per User per Hour$0.03 (using our technology)
Total Monthly Streaming Cost$891,000 (29,700,000 user hours x $0.03/hour)

The App Store Revenue Leak

If GameCorp distributed their games solely through traditional app stores, taking a 30% commission, their revenue breakdown would be:

Revenue StreamBefore CommissionsApp Store Commissions (30%)Net Revenue
Premium Games$100,000,000$30,000,000$70,000,000
F2P Games (IAPs)$600,000,000$180,000,000$420,000,000

With $210,000,000 in app store commissions, GameCorp is losing a substantial portion (30%) of their potential revenue.

The Cloud Streaming Revenue Uplift

By adopting our cloud streaming distribution model, GameCorp can eliminate app store commissions and significantly boost their net revenue:

F2P Games (IAPs)$600,000,000$10,692,000$589,308,000

By eliminating the $210,000,000 in app store commissions and incurring only $21,384,000 in streaming costs, GameCorp’s net revenue skyrockets from $490,000,000 to $678,616,000 – a staggering uplift of $188,616,000 (+38%).

This revenue uplift represents a substantial opportunity for GameCorp to reinvest in game development, marketing, and other growth initiatives, further accelerating their success in the mobile gaming market.
