Activision Blizzard Q2 Results
Activision Blizzard released their Q2 results today. Subscriber numbers are no longer included as there is a pending acquisition by Microsoft.

  • Diablo Immortal reached the top of the game download charts in more than 100 countries and regions following its launch
  • Over half of Diablo Immortal’s player accounts to date are new to Blizzard
  • Diablo Immortal ranked in the top-10 grossing games in U.S. app stores for the month of June.
  • Diablo IV, the next-generation installment in the genre-defining series, is planned for launch on PC and console in 2023. The title will support cross-play and cross-progression across platforms.
  • Blizzard is committed to growing its development resources to meet and exceed its community’s expectations, and at the end of the second quarter significantly bolstered its World of Warcraft team through the acquisition of Boston-based studio Proletariat
  • Blizzard’s second quarter segment revenue and operating income were lower year-over-year but higher versus the first quarter. World of Warcraft net bookings declined versus a year-ago quarter that included the launch of Burning Crusade Classic, offsetting year-over-year growth for Hearthstone and the contribution from the June launch of Diablo Immortal.
