CyberAgent‘s virtual world Ameba Pigg (Ameba Pico outside Japan) is continuing to grow. According to a presentation the company gave during CEDEC 2011, the number of users currently stands at a whopping 8.5 million. That’s up from just 6 million users at the end of January this year (when CyberAgent said it pulls in 600 million yen in revenue ($7.2 million) per month from Ameba Pigg).
CyberAgent launched the virtual world in February 2009.
At the same event, it was also revealed that Pigg Life, a social game embedded in Ameba Pigg, now has 2 million players. CyberAgent launched the game on June 2 this year, and reported 1 million players just 3 weeks later.
