Focus Home Interactive has announced that both A Plague Tale: Innocence and GreedFall had successful launches. As the press release reads, for the first six months of its 2019/20 fiscal year, Focus Home Interactive posted revenues of €79.8 million. In case you’re wondering, this is an increase of 80% in comparison with the same period of last year.
Focus Home Interactive claims that the strong performance in the first half of the year was driven by the successful launches of A Plague Tale: Innocence and GreedFall. The publisher claimed that Greedfall showed a stunning start and beat overall expectations.
Focus also listed the console release of World War Z to its huge success. Now before giving the finger to WWZ and Epic Games Store, do note that the PC version was published by Mad Dog Games.
Jurgen Goeldner, Chairman of the Management Board of Focus Home Interactive, said:
“After the successful launch of World War Z and A Plague Tale in the first quarter, the Group’s positive momentum continued in the second quarter, mainly driven by the successful release of GreedFall. This record performance demonstrates both our ability to leverage the know-how and talent of our teams with that of our partner studios and to maximise the monetization of opportunities. We will continue to work hard with the commitment of pursuing our growth journey.”
John Bert, COO of Focus Home Interactive, added:
“Focus Home Interactive’s growth further accelerated in the second quarter compared to a record first quarter. We anticipated that 2019/20 would be a front-end loaded year and we are very satisfied with our performance during the first half of the year. Even if we do not expect such an exceptional growth rate in the second half of the year, these good results demonstrate our ability to change scale, hence the confirmation of our 2021/2022 revenue targets.”
