Sister site Massively reported earlier today that World of Warcraft
isn't just doing fine in China, it's doing extremely well
. According to Gamasutra
, the Chinese WoW
operator NetEase just posted its Q3 revenue for the year, and the profits are doing nothing but rising. This is a little surprising given the information from the Activision Blizzard investor call earlier this month
, which reported a loss of subscribers, mainly in the east.
Regardless, NetEase posted revenues of 2.0 billion Chinese yuan, up 39.8% -- a substantial number. In China, it seems that World of Warcraft
is still a force to be reckoned with, dropping subscriber numbers or not.
