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.
