Delight Works, the developer company responsible for the hit smartphone game Fate / Grand Order, suffered some pretty devastating losses in the fiscal year that ended last July, as its profits were down 81% compared to the previous year, going from 6.9 billion yen to just 1.3 billion.
While it was not stated whether it was specifically the Fate / Grand order game that contributed to its drastic degradation in earnings, most of the company's titles are related to this franchise, so the game's performance is likely to have had. much of the economic impact on falling earnings.
Delight Works was established in 2014 and, in addition to developing Fate / Grand Order, the company also cut a business partnership with Aiming Ing., And all joint titles they were working on were canceled. Since then, Delight Works has joined forces with Sega in an effort to create Sakura Kakumei. Finally, a graph showing the change in the company's earnings was also published.
Undoubtedly, many will blame the COVID-19 pandemic as the main cause of the decline in developer profits, it is true, but some others surely claim that the decline of Fate / Grand Order could be just around the corner. especially with the large number of similar games flooding the market and Genshin Impact entering the competition.
