Default Games Workshop profits nearly double

Fantasy role playing firm Games Workshop has seen profits almost double in the past 12 months.

The company, which owns the Warhammer franchise but produces dozens of different games, saw pre-tax profits reach £74.5m, up from £38.4m.

Its annual report also confirmed a surge in revenue from £158m to nearly £220m.

I'm not surprised, there seems to be a new warhammer licensed game every month, they're milking it for all it's worth and then some more.

New codices with new must-have units like the Primaris Marines being pushed out, not a surprise they're making out like bandits. They pretty much are bandits, the way they treat 40K fans.

They are designing and offering a product people want and will pay for.

What's with the hate?

I cannot think of a single WH40K fan who doesn't harbor a degree of resentment towards GW. That should tell you a LOT.

Then people shouldn't buy their games.

Complaining/hating/whatever about the money they are making is silly.

Tells me they're hypocrits, buying the product while complaining about the price. It's simple. If you don't like being ripped off then DON'T BUY.

I know nothing about WH40K, but I've gotta ask...How could they've known that they'd get ripped off until they actually GET ripped off?

It's called researching before you buy.

This is true. But as an avid fan of GD, if GD 2 ever gets made and it gets shit reviews, I'd still want to see it for myself.

So I can kinda understand why GW would still sell if it has a huge fan base to begin with.

But maybe I'm projecting my own crazies unto the world at large
