Blacklight Retribution was one of a number of international investments which paid off for Chinese MMO specialists Perfect World this quarter.

Gamasutra reports Perfect World ended its fourth fiscal quarter with a 9.5% year-on-year increase of revenue, at $123.4 million.

The company out-performed forecasts with a gross profit of $101.6 million, a year on year increase of 8%.

“We generate over one-fourth of our total revenues from operating and licensing our games abroad and maintain a geographical coverage of over 100 countries and regions worldwide,” chief financial officer Kelvin Lau revealed.

Perfect World’s international titles include Empire of the Immortals in Japan and Blacklight Retribution in the US.

Chinese MMOs still make up the largest proportion of Perfect World’s revenues, and continue to show growth.
