Big hitters

Lineage 2 Revolution still generates the most revenue for a single game, accounting for 39% of Netmarble's revenues for the quarter. Kabam's Marvel Contest of Champions made up 14% of revenues, while Jam City's Cookie Jam generated 6% of total revenues.

Overall, seven of the company's games generated 79% of its total revenues. Everybody's Marble, Marvel Future Fight, Seven Knights and the recently launched Tera M all accounted for 5% of all revenues each.

Lineage 2 Revolution's Western launch appears to be going well so far, having cleared five million downloads in its first 50 days of release. Overall, the game is estimated to have generated $980 million in 2017.
