NCsoft Q1 2016: Blade & Soul is booming, WildStar is tumbling

Well, crap.

There are good pieces of news from NCsoft‘s first quarter financial report. For one thing, the company’s year-on-year sales, profits, and net income are all up year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter. Q1 2016 was good for the company in that regard. The majority of games in the company’s roster also did quite well for themselves, with Blade & Soul seeing a significant upturn in earnings following the game’s western launch.

On the other hand, if you were hoping for good news about the planet of Nexus… well, WildStar‘s earnings dropped from a high in Q4 2015 to a lower point than the game had hit all through 2015 by a significant margin. Guild Wars 2 and Lineage II both also saw slight downturns, but nothing nearly as severe, while Aion managed to climb above all of its 2015 performance. Take a look at the full report if you’d like to have it broken down in chart format.
