In the realm of F2P MMOs out there, there are really only a few companies that have taking the deep dive, with Aeria Games being one of them, featuring such games as Battlefield Heroes, Grand Fantasia, Shin Megami Tensei and others. Today they’ve announced that they’ve surprised 23 million worldwide gamers, although it isn’t mentioned if this is current players or merely accounts. Still, they’ve gone for the more serious MMO players out there as opposed to the so-called causal gamers.
“Our strategy of targeting highly engaged power gamers around the world and delivering high quality content and outstanding service is paying off with our steadily growing pool of tens of millions of gamers and our extremely strong average revenue per user,” said Lan Hoang, Chief Executive Officer, Aeria Games. “As we move forward, we will continue to form strategic partnerships and grow our development teams while building and acquiring more engaging content to reward our dedicated power gamers.”
Also in the mix is the recent addition of Punch Entertainment to their development group as well as the recently-formed mobile division. Speaking as someone who has played a couple of their games, it’s worth checking out if you’re even remotely into MMOs.
