It is the time of the year where the major gaming companies release their financial reports for the year ending 2015, and NCsoft is no exception. Fresh from a breakup from Nexon, not much has changed, with over-a-decade-old Lineage staying as the main revenue source for NCsoft. Interestingly, WildStar saw a slight growth in the fourth quarter of 2015, though miniscular compared to other titles.
Just to note, total sales in 2015 remain flat compared to 2014, with operating profits (down 15%) and net income (down 27%) suffering slightly. NCsoft claims the drop is due to “less overseas royalty revenue, but still represents continuous profit growth.” South Korea remains NCosft’s main revenue region, and Lineage Eternal is also due for a Closed Beta later this year in its native country.
