14 Million MMO Players Dig Sci-Fi

Posted Dec 06, 2011 by Suzie Ford

14 Million MMO Players Dig Sci-Fi

According to a new report from NewZoo, over fourteen million MMO players in North America prefer to play sci-fi or space-themed titles. The report indicates that 27% of all EU MMO players prefer sci-fi and space-themed games as well.

The study also takes a look at emerging trends for game publishers and developers:

The key question MMO publishers are facing today is the choice between Free-To-Play (F2P) and Pay-To-Play (P2P). The majority of American SciFi MMO gamers only goes for F2P: 68% compared to 16% for P2P. The remaining 16% plays both F2P as P2P MMO games. Most F2P gamers play for free but still the absolute number of SCiFi MMO gamers spending money in F2P MMO games outnumbers the 4.5M P2P gamers.

Check out an "infographic" showing the data totals on the NewZoo site.
