In 2023, Netmarble cumulatively earned $1.92 billion in revenue, with overseas revenue accounting for $1.59 billion (83% of total revenue).

  • Netmarble’s portfolio showed genre diversification across Casual Games (43%), RPG (38%), MMORPG (9%), and other genres (10%).
  • Strong performance of Seven Knights Idle Adventure, which was launched worldwide in September 2023, and a surge in sales for MARVEL Contest of Champions have contributed to the increase in quarterly revenue from the previous quarter, resulting in an operating profit in Q4.
