Netmarble’s Lineage 2: Revolution generated $924 million in first 11 months

Netmarble's smash hit mobile MMORPG Lineage 2: Revolution made $924 million in its first 11 months of release.

Much of these revenues came from the publisher’s homeland in South Korea having generated $176 million in its first month alone.

Netmarble is now planning a big update in 2018 as it looks to build on the game’s momentum and push it globally.

Something to marble at

As well as working on Lineage 2 the publisher has set its sights on a big Western push with the reveal of a large line-up of new games.

The slate includes titles such as Jam City’s RPG Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery and a real-time multiplayer Magic: The Gathering title codenamed Project M, developed in collaboration with Wizards of the Coast.

The publisher is also set to release its first ‘global’ real-time strategy game called Firstborn: Kingdom Come.

Netmarble enjoyed a profitable first year as a public company in 2017 with end of year revenues coming in at $2.2 billion.

“Netmarble has enjoyed a successful first year as a public company with the launch of Lineage 2: Revolution in North America and Japan and the company’s first expansion into global territories,” Netmarble chief global officer Seung-Won Lee said.

“We’re excited to continue combining our game development expertise with both original and world-renowned IPs to deliver console-quality role-playing experiences on a global scale.”
