Just to give everybody an idea what the term "mobile games tornado" means, in the 3rd fiscal quarter 2017, i.e. in three months, Lineage M, together with Lineage Red Knights etc. and the royalties from Lineage 2 Revolution, generated a revenue of 550 million dollars:

I myself have to work many years to make that kind of money :D

They need every single dollar and certainly won't stop milking. As of the 3rd fiscal quarter 2017 the labor cost (mainly the developers' salaries and bonuses; the outsourced Community Managers etc. are listed under "Others") increased by 66% year-over-year and they are still heavily hiring:

Don't expect mercy from NCsoft! :D

Indeed. They even made a nice profit. 275 million dollars after expenses and taxes is not bad at all. For comparison, in 2Q2017 the net profit was about 1/10 of the gross revenue (31 million vs. 260 million), while now we are at about 1/3 (275 million vs. 727 million). The profitability of the operations has significantly increased.

But keep in mind, all this is going to be re-invested. I don't even want to imagine how much the development of the Virtual Reality version of Blade & Soul is going to eat up:

Lineage 2 Revolution is available for download, but apparently only in selected western markets. I pre-registered and got the download email, but since I’m in Uruguay I can`t download it.
