just released its fourth quarter 2012 earnings report, and things are looking pretty good across the board for the multi-MMO company. NCsoft's earnings are up both quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year due to the releases of Blade & Soul
and Guild Wars 2
, not to mention "record-breaking annual revenues" from Lineage
Guild Wars 2
accounted for 45% of the company's sales in Q4, followed by Lineage
(24%) and Blade & Soul
newest game increased the North American market from 16% in Q3 to 25% in Q4.
It's not completely sunshine and roses, however. Lineage II
both experienced declines during the period. NCsoft's net income was in the red for the quarter and its stock has slid
since September, losing half of its value in the process.
