The Simpsons: Tapped Out game generated over $23m.

EA has released non-GAAP financials for its fiscal Q3 ending December 31st 2012, claiming it was the number one global iOS games publisher last year. Indeed, The Simpson: Tapped Out generated revenues of $23m, making it one of the highest grossing games on the Apple platform in the period.

Revenue for the studio's mobile games and services – including handheld consoles – hit $100m, an 18 per cent year-on-year increase.

Over the past year the firm has reiterated its focus on mobile and digital games, saying freemium will become 'the norm' and that 'mobile will push console gaming into a niche'. With that in mind, EA will likely be pleased that the Origin digital games portal now has more than 39m registered users, with 17m from mobile devices.
