The game definitely had the odds in its favor after launching for free on iOS, Android, and Windows 10 all on the same day but a million players is still impressive. It’ll be interesting to see if the player engagement increases or decreases after the initial curiosity has worn off.
The official Gears Pop! social accounts and website have yet to acknowledge this milestone but they have published a list of issues and bugs that a lot of players have experienced since launch. You can read all about them here.
