The9, which is the company in China that runs Blizzard's World of Warcraft game ther
e, has released their second quarter financial numbers
, and they're rocking yet again
-- they pulled in record income and revenue, nabbing about US$66.3 million, a full $60.7 million of which came directly from World of Warcraft
and all the deals they have surrounding that property there. And their peak concurrent user total for WoW topped 1 million
, which means one million accounts (not necessarily people) were logged on and playing at the same time.
Apparently the company is also running a few other games
, but clearly WoW
is dominating their income, and, needless to say, doing very well for them. And probably won't be stopping anytime soon -- if Blizzard follows through on their plan to release Wrath asap in China
, odds are that The9's biggest game will get even more popular.
