The approved fiscal year 2021-2022 Draft Financial Statements from Digital Bros Group’s Board of Directors has unveiled that Assetto Corsa had generated more than €21m in revenue, making it the publisher’s best-selling game over the past 12 months.
The Digital Bros Group 2021-2022 fiscal year lasted from 1st July 2021 until 30th June 2022. Digital Bros is the owning entity of 505 Games, which in turn owns the developmental entity Kunos Simulazioni, developers of both Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione.
This number could pertain to the entire Assetto Corsa franchise, which would include the titular Assetto Corsa simulator which was released in 2014 on PC and in 2016 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There also exists Assetto Corsa Mobile for iPhone users which was released during FY2021-2022 in August 2021.
Assetto Corsa Competizione, the official videogame of the GT World Challenge, which was released for PC back in 2019, previous gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles in 2020 and the current-gen consoles earlier in 2022, also contributed to these figures.
“The bestselling video game was the evergreen Assetto Corsa, intellectual property owned by the Group, which exceeded Euro 21 million revenue,” stated the report.
Back in May, Ross reported that at that time, Assetto Corsa was also leading the way through nine months of the 2021-2022 fiscal year.
Looking at the full results, the company as a whole does look to have dropped YoY in Gross Revenue, EBITDA and Net profit / (loss). The Operating margin and Profit / (loss) before tax were positive changes YoY.
The Italian-based firm also has popular non-racing gaming titles such as 2020’s Death Stranding for PC and 2019’s Control listed. The racing simulation of Assetto Corsa, however, was able to bring in more than both of those, which is a good thing for our fancied genre of racing games.
While we don’t know of any planned new Assetto Corsa properties coming in the upcoming 2022-2023 fiscal year, we do know that Assetto Corsa 2 is due for release in 2024. Competizione, on the other hand, will receive the 2023 GT World Challenge Europe series and a GT2 car pack in 2023.
