Nexon continues to maintain its lead in Q2 2017, capturing 58% share of the whole PC games business. This was due to poor performance from its major competitors, who were affected by seasonality and occupied by mobile. NCSOFT’s mobile games business surpassed its legacy PC sector in the Korea market in Q2, thanks to the success of Lineage M from mid-June onward, as well as the solid performance of Lineage 2 Revolution (L2R) through Netmarble.

Highlights

  • Lineage M helps NCSOFT come from behind to win mobile presence
  • China version of Dungeon & Fighter becomes key to Nexon's revenue growth
  • The popularity of Battlegrounds threatens new launches from NCSOFT and Nexon
