Special Force series sweeping over Asia

We have some news regarding the globally acclaimed FPS, Special Force (or should we say “the Special Force series” now that Special Force 2 is coming out?). In Thailand, Special Force, developed by Dragonfly, is proving to be a blockbuster hit. Since September 2007, Special Force has been keeping its place as the number one online game in Thailand’s game ranking list. That is over 100 weeks of maintaining steady popularity. The number of registered users for Special Force in Thailand is 1.8 billion and the PCU reaches over 50,000. Thanks to the huge popularity, True Digital Plus (also known as True Digital Entertainment), the local publisher that services Special Force in Thailand, exploded in growth over the last few years since it launched Special Force in October 2006. Special Force recorded a growth rate of 200% every year since the launch, and last month, Special Force broke its previous records by achieving sales of USD 1.7 million, doing a huge favor for True Digital.

On another note, Special Force 2, an ambitious sequel to Special Force, is beginning to make a move towards the Asian market. Following last month’s deal with Tian City, a publisher in China, (please refer to our previous post for more information), Dragonfly signed another license agreement to export Special Force 2 abroad. On November 10th, Dragonfly announced that it has signed a publishing contract with NHN Japan to service Special Force 2 for the next three years. NHN Japan, a branch of NHN Corp., is an accomplished publisher in Japan that led Special Force to success in Japan. Despite the known fact that Japanese users are not particularly hospitable towards FPS games, NHN Japan managed to accumulate over 4 million users registered for Special Force, and Special Force ranked as a number one FPS in the market. Having established satisfactory partner relationships, Dragonfly and NHN Japan are looking forward to collaborating with each other to successfully localize Special Force 2and to record another milestone in the Japanese FPS market. There is much anticipation for the Japanese market as the market generally has higher ARPU than other foreign markets. For now, Special Force 2 is scheduled for release in 2011 in Japan.

Meanwhile, Special Force 2 is still under development in Korea.
