China’s video game industry is now worth over ¥83 billion, equal to almost $14 billion. This means that the industry has grown by over 40% in the last year which is not surprising. What is surprising is the fact that 64.5% of that revenue came from PC games instead of the expected mobile games.
A new report from China’s GPC (link via Google Translate), an industry group for game publishers, shows that China’s video game industry is now worth 83.17 billion RMB (or $13 billion), a 40% increase over the past 12 months (h/t Games In Asia). While the growth is not surprising, the fact that most of that revenue came from PC-based games may be, especially considering the amount of attention that has been focused on the rise of mobile in China.
