Perfect World’s third quarter profits fell, according to a financial results document published yesterday by the free-to-play giant. CEO Robert Xiao blamed PW’s American operations for the drop, though he said the firm remains “confident in the long-term prospects of our US subsidiary given its strong R&D and operational capabilities as well as [its] promising pipeline.”
Perfect World declined to comment on the performance of Neverwinter’s Q3 console launch. It did note that it is localizing the fantasy MMO for China, where the company has seen its concurrent user numbers drop from 778,000 to 623,000 inside of a year.
