It is always interesting to see how video game companies are doing in the market, which is constantly growing. The group is led by transnational giants, such as Sony, which has been one of the most important, but will soon be displaced by Microsoft.
As we told you, PlayStation is the company of the main console manufacturing group (along with Nintendo and Microsoft) that generates the most profits. For several years now, it has managed to hold onto that position only below the Chinese giant Tencent.
In fiscal year 2021, which just ended, Sony generated $18.2 billion, which placed it second on the list of video game companies that generate the most money. The first place is Tencent with $32.2 MMDD and in third place is Apple with $15.38 MMDD. In total, the 10 companies generated $126 million dollars in revenue last fiscal year, according to a report by the analysis firm Newzoo, via GamesBeat.

While PlayStation has losses, Xbox has incredible growth
Although the figure may seem enormous, the truth is that the companies involved grew moderately. Precisely Sony is the one that had the worst performance; in fact, it is the only one that had negative numbers, since the previous year it had generated $18.6 million dollars, (a drop of 2.3%, not to be confused with losses).
For its part, Tencent had a growth of 9.9% compared to the previous year. In case you do not know, this company is responsible for super successful games worldwide, such as Honor of Kings y Clash Royale.
Another point to note is that Microsoft was one of the companies that grew the most: 9.6%, which contrasts sharply with Nintendo (1.9%) and the negative numbers for Sony. The performance of the latter is attributed to the remaining effects of the pandemic. In contrast, the very positive numbers from Microsoft are due to the Xbox Game Pass strategy.
In case you missed it: Xbox was the best game publisher of 2021 according to Metacritic.
Following the merger, Xbox and Activision Blizzard are projected to generate $21 billion, meaning Xbox will finally become the top earning company, trailing only top power Tencent and knocking Sony into third place with $18.2 MDD.
Something similar will happen with Take-Two Interactive, which after the purchase of Zynga will enter the top 10, with $5.7 million dollars, it will precisely be in position 9.
These estimates were made taking into account the earnings of each company in fiscal year 2021.
