My.Games Accounted For 40% Of Mail.ru's Revenue In Q3, With Warface A "Top-3 Revenue Generator"
Mail.ru, the Internet conglomerate that operates My.Games, announced its 2020 third-quarter financial results today. While the company wasn't quite as flush with cash and new users due to COVID-19 lockdowns as it was earlier in the year, it was still a good quarter, and Mail.ru will "expect FY 2020 MMO Games revenue growth of around 30%."
Specifically, My.Games revenue in Q3 rose 32.8% as compared to the same quarter in 2019, accounting for 40% of the overall Mail.ru revenue in that time frame. 75% of that revenue came from mobile titles; 76% of all gaming revenue came from outside Russia.
On PCs and consoles, Warface remains strong, with 3.3 million registered players on Switch since its surprise launch in February. The game is a "top-3 revenue generator," which means that it's behind at least one or two of the company's mobile games, further showcasing how even a huge PC/console title is routinely dwarfed these days by mobile hits.
Conqueror's Blade has 2.7 million registered players and brought in about $1 million per month. The only notes about Skyforge mention its 12 million registered players and its upcoming launch on Switch. As for Lost Ark -- developed by Smilegate and published by My.Games in the Russia/CIS region -- it has 2.2 million registered players in that territory. As always, remember that "registered players" is simply the number of people who have ever signed up for an account, and not a measure of active players at any time.
