NCsoft Q1: Growth for Guild Wars 2, further deflation for WildStar
NCsoft‘s first quarter financial report is out, and… you know, let’s start with the good news. Guild Wars 2 is making the company more money, fueled by all of that talk about an expansion pack, so that’s doing quite well. Blade & Soul is also apparently doing fairly well with its addition of a Taiwanese version, at that.
And… yes, that was it for the good news. The company’s net income is down 3% year-on-year, with an expectation that the company will rebound in the next quarter but grim numbers for now. It doesn’t help that WildStar‘s numbers continue to fall, dropping 50% to a bit over $2 million in sales. This continues the downward trend established with the last financial report from the publisher. You can check out the entire financial report on the official corporate site.
