DOTA 2's dime

Perfect World doesn't break out its mobile sales, although it noted that PC online games Swordsman Online and DOTA 2, for which it has the Chinese rights, both performed strongly.

During the quarter, Perfect World launched 3D fantasy MMORPG mobile game Forsaken World and 2D turn-based cartoon-style RPG CrossGate Mobile.

Future releases include a mobile version of Swordsman Online, as well as titles dancing game Touch and Forever Mars.
