NCsoft Reports First Quarter Net Income

| | Comments (0)
NCsoft, publisher of games such as Lineage II and Auto Assault, released its financial results for the first quarter of 2006, today.
The company reported net income of KRW 6.8 billion (KRW – South Korean Won – that's around $7.2 million). The company broke its sales down be region, noting that 70% of sales came from South Korea, while North America was responsible for 14%, Europe for 5% and Japan for 10%. Sales in Korea and Japan increased, while sales in North America and Europe were approximately half the level of the previous quarter, which included the launch of City of Villains.

Perhaps even more interesting is that the company broke sales down by game, revealing that Lineage was responsible for 38% of sales, Lineage II was responsible for 37% of sales, City of Heroes and City of Villains were responsible for 8% and Guild Wars was responsible for 8% of sales. So, keep in mind that while the original Lineage may not have grabbed the American market, it (along with Lineage II) still drives NCsoft's revenue.
