Hi everyone,

We're planning on making big improvements to our game app Yukon Warrior. We're debating whether or not to update the existing app or create a separate app.

Here's the list of pros and cons so far for creating a new app.

Pros:

- Existing users won't have to go to the appstore to get the new game as their existing one will be updated
- One app to maintain vs. 2

Cons:

- Won't be featured as a hot new game
- No initial download spike from being a new app on the store
- Loss of a potential source of revenue from old app

Does anyone here have experience with this or advice to go either way? What would the game journalist's stance be? Would love to hear your thoughts, please share actual experience if you can! Thanks!

It seems like it's better to release a new app, but I don't have any facts to back that up. You probably want to do an update to your existing app to let them know about the new app.

You might try posting on reddit's r/gamedev.
