Black Desert Reaches $1.7 Billion USD In Lifetime Revenue

Pearl Abyss celebrates its 10-year anniversary yesterday as a games developer. And turns out, their current mainline IP, Black Desert, is earning them big money.

The South Korean-based developer announced that since the launch of Black Desert in 2014, the MMORPG has over 40 million players across four platforms.

Black Desert also racked up $1.7 billion USD worth of lifetime revenue. 40% of which is contributed by players in North America and Europe with 34% coming from Asia. This does not include the home base of South Korea, where it’s massively popular that the one country alone makes up the rest of the 26% of generated revenue.

Black Desert, and the newly released Black Desert, continues to be getting updates. Pearl Abyss also released the PVP battle royale spin-off, Shadow Arena, on Steam Early Access recently.

Moving forward, there’s three other games that’s still in development by Pear Abyss: an epic fantasy MMORPG titled Crimson Desert, a more light-hearted MMO called DokeV, and an MMO shooter title Plan 8.

Pearl Abyss also owns CCP Games, the makers of space MMO EVE Online, which also recently has a mobile version- EVE Online Echoes.
