Activision Blizzard Is On Top, Due To Destiny 2 And Blizzard’s Titles!

Activision Blizzard‘s latest financial results are unbelievable.

The publisher revealed its latest quarterly financial result (the latest quarter ended on September 30), and it turns out the company had its biggest net revenue (1.62 billion dollars) of all Q3s so far, which means there’s also a year-on-year increase ( the last Q3 was 1.57 billion dollars). The digital net revenue also saw a growth to 1.35 billion dollars.

The success is due to the growth of Blizzard’s games, as well as the console launch of Destiny 2. Although we don’t know yet how many copies were sold of Bungie’s game, up to Super Mario Odyssey, at least, it was the best-selling console title in the USA this year. Half of the Destiny 2 sales were confirmed to be digital. More time is spent on Destiny 2 by players than on the first one, and more people are interested in the sequel’s season pass than the first Destiny, which is amazing, as the first game was out on PS3 and X360 as well.

Call of Duty is also flying high: in the last quarter, it reached its highest amount ever in a Q3 for monthly active users, and Blizzard set a new record as well (at least this one has a number: 42 million MAUs!), which has been going for a whole year for them. Most of the figures are related to Overwatch, which recently celebrated 35 million users…

…and think about it, the figures might reach even higher with the PC port of Destiny 2 and Call of Duty: WWII launching!
