Honestly, I’m not surprised ATVI is down a bunch. EA and Ubisoft have been going down too, along with Take Two. Blizzard lost like 7 million MAU year over year this last quarter. What I AM surprised with is that signs are pointing that OW and Hearthstone have the biggest losses. Yet, Destiny 2: Forsaken wasn’t able to grasp a majority of the players they had last year and WoW has it’s own problems.
On Diablo, I’ve said it in Discord, but I’m not against a mobile Diablo. I think Blizz can do great things on the platform, if just given a chance. The Blizzcon debacle was unfortunate, but if they didn’t even have a D4 or D2 remaster cinematic finished, then it makes sense they went with D:I. But not showing it at the end of the opening ceremony, that was a mistake.
Still a huge fan of Blizz.
