Activision Blizzard made $1.95bn in the third quarter of 2020
Activision Blizzard has been doing brisk business this last quarter, and they have hauled in around $1.95 billion in revenue.
Call of Duty remains the jewel in the crown, and Call of Duty Warzone has actually increased its revenue year-on-year, largely because the COVID-19 lockdowns brought in lots of new players. According to CEO Bobby Kotick, the Call of Duty development studios will be bolstered with another 2,000 hires to meet production demands.
Nostalgia: Other big hits in the last quarter includes the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 remakes alongside Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, both of which opened strong and Activision Blizzard expect them to keep doing good numbers for Christmas.
Busy holiday: Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War is launching across multiple platforms on November 13th, followed by the World of WarCraft expansion Shadowlands. Then, somewhere over the horizon, Diablo IV is lurking.
