Ubisoft’s Hungry Shark franchise hits one billion downloads on mobile devices

Love at every bite for Ubisoft's Future Games of London!

The Hungry Shark franchise has officially reached one billion downloads worldwide across all platforms, making it Ubisoft‘s most popular mobile franchise.

The Hungry Shark franchise shows great Sharks across the world’s oceans

The franchise, created by Ubisoft Future Games of London since the UK studio’s founding in 2009, depicts sharks in a feeding frenzy throughout the world’s oceans. With just a seven-person team, the initial Hungry Shark was released in 2010 on mobile platforms. It spawned two sequels before the release of Hungry Shark Evolution in 2012 (managed by Ubisoft Barcelona Mobile studio since 2019).

Hungry Shark Evolution, currently in its tenth year, has been downloaded over 630,000 times alone. All thanks to a switch to a freemium model that dramatically increased the player base. The studio was acquired by Ubisoft in 2013, and the wildly popular Hungry Shark World game was released in 2016.

We’re proud to reach this incredible milestone and I’d like to thank the teams involved for their hard work as we look ahead to some exciting announcements in early 2023 on the future direction of the studio and to share more on Hungry Shark brand
