Perfect World’s profits fell for 3Q, due in part to the performance of its operations in the US. In the latest financial report, during the three-month period ended Sep 30 2014, Perfect World reported ¥60.7 billion ($9.9 million) in net income for the quarter, 50% of the ¥120.9 million it earned in the same period last year. Non-GAAP profit was ¥126.4 billion ($20.6 million), down from ¥141.5 billion.
The drop comes despite launching Dota 2, a new client MMORPG and a couple of mobile games in China. It was mentioned that the sluggish North American result is due to the falling number of Neverwinter players. However, Perfect World is still confident in the long-term prospects of the US subsidiary given its strong R&D and operational capabilities as well as promising pipeline.
