This guy does not get it, it is a fad which will be replaced with something else. The chances that this game continues with it's top ranking are almost zip.
I dunno, you might have said the same thing about Counterstrike 10 years ago, but it's still super popular.
And yet, have you seen a Counterstrike movie? A Counterstrike TV franchise? A Counterstrike band? A line of Counterstrike novels and/or comics?
Universal media franchises currently are what game developers thought MMOs were going to be 10-15 years ago - a vast untapped wealth of money just waiting to be scooped up, that will eventually be revealed as a niche that appeals to a small but loyal people who are attached to one or two, and that's it.
i.e. Many will try, few will win.
