Fallout Shelter was one of Bethesda’s most well received games during this year’s E3 event. iOS users were the first to receive it, and the company did say they’ll need a couple of months to get the Android version ready for release.
Looking at their latest announcement, which states Fallout Shelter will hit the Play Store on August 13th, their initial statement was quite accurate. The game was a major hit on iOS, in fact it managed to earn $5.1 million in its first two weeks. It looks like an unobtrusive IAP model like Fallout Shelter has, can be in fact quite profitable.

Even Bethesda wasn’t expecting the game to become so successful. Fallout Shelter was initially just a way to keep the hype alive for Fallout 4 PC and console game, which is set to arrive on November 10. The company got more than they ever hoped for, and it’s likely the success of Fallout Shelter on iOS has kept them motivated to bring the game on Android as fast as possible.
