On today’s earnings call, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said that that Magic: the Gathering had a “strong” third quarter, led by sales of Core Set 2021, Zendikar Rising, and Double Masters.

Magic saw growth in both tabletop and digital. Goldner revealed that July’s Core Set 2021 was the best-selling core set ever, following the trend set by April’s Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, which was the best-selling Spring set ever. MTG Arena, on the other hand, has reached 2.8 billion games played since launch and players play an average of 9 hours a week. He also announced that Arena’s mobile release has been delayed into early 2021.

Goldner went on to say that Magic’s revenue is up “double digits” so far in 2020 when compared to 2019. Hasbro’s overall revenue fell 12% when comparing the same period.

Deborah Thomas, Hasbro’s CFO, added that Magic’s tabletop sales still exceed its digital sales and that digital releases on Arena have a noticeable positive impact on tabletop sales.
