Com2uS revenues hit $114.8 million as Summoners War clears $890 million lifetime overseas revenues

Com2uS has released its financials for its Q2 FY17 for the three months ending June 30th 2017.

It posted revenues of $114.8 million for the quarter, up 2% year-on-year and 8% quarter-on-quarter. Profits fell by 1% year-on-year to $33.3 million, though this represented a 2% increase sequentially.

Breaking this down further, $99.7 million of its revenues was generated outside of Korea. This represents 83% of the company's revenues for the quarter.

Summoners War remains Com2uS' flagship game, having now surpassed $890 million in lifetime revenues overseas. It hit this milestone with Korea revenues included in July 2017.

Wars and more

Looking ahead, the developer will be adding new features to Summoners War to drive retention, as well as developing a new MMO based on the IP and pushing the game as an eSport. It is planning to run a Summoners War World Arena Championship through the second half of 2017.

It still has a number of other games in the pipeline, including a partnership with Activision on a Skylanders game. The new title looks to be an RPG battler with players building a "deck" of Skylanders characters and entering them in PvP battles.

Outside of its games, Com2uS is also creating a number of other properties using the Summoners War IP. This includes cartoons, movies, and merchandise.
