Both, RAID and Hero Wars have scaled extremely quickly at the same time reaching $16M a month run-rate at the time of writing this analysis. This is the frequently asked question when looking at the growing sub-genre with multiple new and old titles bringing in excess of $100M every year. The key difference between these two sub-genres is that Action RPGs have a Marvel game and MMOs don’t. Lack of flagship title in MMOs is visible in the download graphs as well. The Falconeer absolutely has its high points, and all of the elements of a great game are there. It’s just disappointing that they don’t gel enough to be wholly satisfying.

Even though the original unveil of the game was extremely underwhelming for the core audience. We expect LEGENDARY to continue to decline as the game looks to have tapped out its small hardcore audience.

We hope that N3TWORK comes quickly with a game to stop the decline as this is the only live title in the company’s portfolio. If N3TWORK fails to launch anything new in 2020 it is likely that the company will be acquired by a larger publisher. Out bet is EA or Activision, who both could benefit on N3TWORKS publishing tools and experience significantly. We predict that GLU’s Disney Sorcerer’s Arena will make between $30M to $50M falling significantly below target. The reason for this high-profile well polished game’s lack of success is the combination of an unfitting IP and misplaced focus on core gameplay instead of metagame. The high production values combined with an external IP will unfortunately make the stumble more costly. While Summoners Wars has declined to a half of its peak, the game is still monetising as well as other top rivals in the sub-genre.
While we do have the full confidence in the Asian team crafting the game, Blizzards abilities on mobile are unproven . Last year we predicted that the sub-genre would grow significantly in the West driven by the success of the new Diablo on mobile – or more accurately – the Diablo re-skin of Legacy of Discord. We saw this game as a hit in the West and the East alike.
To summarise it, there is more than one way to succeed in the RPG genre – as long as the depth, the appeal is there and the live operations are perfected. And by more than one way I don’t mean having a broad appeal versus being niched down to a smaller audience. Multiple ways to succeed refers to gameplay, art style and IP – or lack of it. From 2D to 3D, from IP to no IP, from core gameplay innovation to no core gameplay at all. There are multiple ways to reach the top of an RPG genre, as long as you follow the three principles – and execute flawlessly. All those beautiful Sith Lords and Spidermans are expensive to model, rig, animate and integrate.

The only way to go is to perfect the art production and art outsourcing. Always look to decrease production cost by simplifying the art style. Re-use hero rigs, limit the amount of bones or simplify animation or just go full Small Giant and treat your art merely a functional piece of game design. I’m not trying to make a point for making your game look cheap. In fact, a 2D game can look great – just like AFK Arena and LEGENDARY. The point I’m making is that high-quality asset production is not the only way to go.
