Guild Wars 2 is up, WildStar is down in NCsoft’s 2015 Q2 financial report

    
144

NCsoft has published its second quarter 2015 financial report, and it’s basically a repeat of quarter one.

The company attributes its quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year boosts primarily to Blade & Soul’s “strong performance” in East Asia and momentum in Taiwan as well as the Lineage series’ continued dominance.

Western sales for the company rose slightly over last quarter but are down year-over-year, probably because its major expected releases, expansions, and conversions in 2015 haven’t happened yet. Guild Wars 2 and Aion are both up on the quarter and year. WildStar, on the other hand, continues to struggle, having lost a fifth of its sales since the May report.

Telos_ As I recall, it was the appearance of Wildstar in a datamine of Steam databases that ruined their surprise announcement of F2P.  I’d imagine that the Steam release will coincide with the implementation of F2P.

badgers12 The company uses them interchangeably across different platforms. We stick with NCsoft.

Well the devs didn’t get enough money from KS to fund their game so apparantly not that many people care.

sray155 I think you mean 10m, not 20m. Which was still doing beautifully for a small game post-WoW shouldering a second game. Grumble.

SoMuchMass Line with more hugs What do you mean “now”? We’ve always reported on Raptr’s stats. Raptr is one of the few times we ever get stats at all. We just don’t treat them as more than they are: a snapshot of a self-selected, limited subgroup in the industry.

MetaDune DrowNoble A lot of people care. How about both? Turns out we can support multiple games at a time. :D

sray155 It’s not like there would be any difference if GW2 was out there. Stop trying to downplay Aion.

DrowNoble Who cares? Support the devs that are making the spiritual successor to CoH

Hey NCsoft need some extra cash?  How about selling the City of Heroes IP?  It’s not like you haven’t had offers on it…
