Sega has released their company sales report for April 1 to June 30th, and things are looking pretty good.
According to Gamespot, The Sonic the Hedgehog creators saw a 33 percent increase in sales from last year, which has included a $30 million profit. This is a dramatic improvement over last year’s $93 million loss.
The company is attributing this to multiple aspects of their company. In particular, the company highlighted the launch of Phantasy Star Online 2’s launch on PS4, saying the game has reached its highest level of popularity. Sales for Chain Chronicle – Kizuna no Shintairiku, Puyopuyo!! Quest and Hortensia Saga were also applauded. Total War: Warhammer’s popularity in Europe was highlighted, reaching sales of 20 million copies in 17 years.
The company expects growth in Asia, and says it will leverage the “large markets” for PC games in Europe, American and Asia.
It will be interesting to see how this growth progresses with the 2017 releases of two new Sonic games.
