Lego Star Wars boosts SCi revenue to £70 million

SCi has announced revenue has risen by 40 per cent to GBP 70 million for the first six months of the fiscal year, with Lego Star Wars, Justice League Heroes and Just Cause the key performers.

SCi has announced revenues have risen 40 per cent for the first six months of the fiscal year, to GBP 70 million (EUR 106m).

The majority of the increase in revenue is from distribution of products, with the continued success of TT Games' Lego Star Wars, as well as the recently released Justice League Heroes, proving to be key performers.

The company revealed that new products accounted for 50 per cent of revenues to December 30, with new IP Just Cause the most successful release.

The publisher has confirmed that a sequel is in development, while it expects sales of the original Just Cause to reach one million units by the end of the fiscal year.

One third of revenue for the first half came from the distribution of third-party titles, with sales of Lego Star Wars so far reaching 5.4 million units. The publisher also anticipates that Justice League Heroes, released in November, will also sell one million units by the end of the fiscal year.

The publisher expects the majority of revenues for the 2007 fiscal year to arise in the second half, with titles such as Tomb Raider Anniversary, Battlestations: Midway and a portfolio of titles aimed at the casual PC market, all due for release.
