NCSoft's Q2 2021 Looked A Lot Like Its Q2 2020

NCSoft's Q2 2021 financials are, in many ways, remarkably similar to the company's numbers from the same quarter in 2020. Overall sales, mobile revenue, and sales of individual games are very close to what they were in Q2 2020, as you can see from the charts below, with my added highlights in red:

That last chart, however, shows something unusual: Aion and Blade & Soul have basically swapped revenues. That's probably due to Aion launching successful classic servers in Korea and North America, while B&S is still prepping for its revival, with an imminent sequel on the way.

Oh, and Lineage was also down, but it will probably bounce back. It always does. The static nature of the games has led to decreased operating profit and net income over the past year, although those metrics did slightly rebound from Q1 to Q2.

The bulk of NCSoft's sales, about 2/3, comes from Korea, with North America and Europe only accounting for about 4.5% of that figure combined. Costs display a similar rising/falling action over the past several quarters, with an expanded budget for Lineage 2 M and Blade & Soul 2 accounting for much of the increase.
