Announcing the KZero RPG Galaxy chart

We’ve been slogging away at this for a while, so now we’re delighted to announce the first publication of what we’re calling the RPG Galaxy chart. Anyone who’s ever asked us ‘Where is World of Warcraft?’ now knows where to look!

The Role Playing Games (RPG) Galaxy chart is similar in style to the Virtual Worlds Universe chart (see what we did there ;) ) and shows total cumulative registered accounts for:

  • MMORPG: Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game
  • FPS: First Person Shooter
  • ARTS: Action Real Time Strategy
  • MOBA: Multiplayer Online Battle Arena
  • MOR: Multiplayer Online Racing

As usual with the first iteration of these types of charts, it’s extremely important to point out that these are very much work-in-progress and contain estimates. These charts will be published on a quarterly basis and will improve (in terms of accuracy) over time. We’ll also be adding in new games with each edition.

High res versions of the chart can be ordered here and here’s the Slideshare version. Shown below is the segment showing games with an estimated average age between 20 and 25.

In this age range, fr0m a MMORPG perspective Dragons Nest leads the pack with 100m cumulative registered accounts with Dofus in second place with 55m.

The other juggernaut in this segment is a QQ Speed, an online racing game with 100m registered accounts.

From a ARTS point of view Travian is a major player with 80 registered accounts.

Moving onto the next age range of 25 to 30…

We estimate World of Warcraft to have 90m cumulative registered users and therefore the largest RPG in this age group. Ragnarok Online and Perfect World tie in second place with 50m.

More updates to follow!
