Investment firm sees a dark future for WildStar, bright hopes for Guild Wars 2

Oh, there's going to be so much chopping.

Korean investment firm KDB Daewoo Securities is not predicting a rosy future for WildStar, although it still is recommending NCsoft as a “buy” prospect. The firm sees WildStar dropping to $585,000 in revenue per month, with a year-over-year drop of 91.1% from its launch last year.

The good news is that the firm forecasts NCsoft’s revenue increasing in the first quarter, helped by a jump in Lineage microtransaction sales. Guild Wars 2 is expected to be a financial boon when the expansion releases in the anticipated second quarter. The firm says that 4.6M copies of the fantasy title have been sold so far.

The firm also noted that shareholders are “vying for control” of the publisher, particularly referring to Nexon’s involvement as of late.
