NEWS:

ABK Earnings report:

Blizzard’s numbers are catastrophic!

Revenue down 28%, bookings down 15% and net income is down 68%.

MAUs only went up (year over year) by roughly 1 million from 26 to 27 million.

From Q1 to Q2 ‘22 MAUs went up from 22 to 27 million, likely due to Diablo: Immortal.

Diablo: Immortal had 30 million installs, so Blizzard tells us.

 Quarter over Quarter there is an increase of MAUs of 5 million.

 China launch was delayed, so we’ll see other MAU numbers at the next earnings report.

Hello everyone!


I may have just seen the twitch notification that the podcast was live and may have just remembered that I had forgotten to submit a thing.  All good now! ^_^


This week I have a little audio from my adventures and a Blast from the Past from episode 450.  Enjoy!
