Games Workshop made £25 million from videogames last year, and a dozen more titles are on the way

Games Workshop, the UK-based company behind the Warhammer products, has released its yearly financials (opens in new tab) and discussed its ever-increasing presence in video games. The Warhammer brand is not so much the company’s bread-and-butter as the entire contents of the pantry, and while its core business remains miniatures and its own products, it is now involved in a huge number of licensing deals to make videogames.

The financial year saw six new Warhammer games, four on PC / console, one VR, and one mobile: the two Games Workshop especially highlighted as “launches of note” were Total War: Warhammer 3 (opens in new tab)and Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate (opens in new tab). This contributed to the company’s overall licensing revenue increasing from £11.7 million in 2020/2021 to £28.0 million in 2021/2022, which is put down to “a high level of guarantee income on multi-year contracts signed in the year”, which was £15 million against 2021’s £4.3 million.
