Activision Blizzard Reports $4.4 Billion Net Revenue

Activision Blizzard, mighty publisher of all things Blizzard and some other games, has reported net revenue for 2014 totalling $4.4billion dollars.

In terms of numbers this breaks down a few different ways. Activision Blizzard had three of the five best selling games last year with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Destiny and Skylanders.

Destiny, which made back its initial investment in good time, has reported more than 16 million registered users. This is dwarfed by Hearthstone with its 25 million card players. World of Warcraft managing to break back past 10 million subscribers almost looks small in that regard. Almost but it still dwarfs most things.

Between Destiny and Hearthstone, further huge numbers pop up. Specifically the two games together account for more than $850million of the revenue last year. That is an awful lot of cards by any persons counting.

So then. Activision Blizzard made $4.4 billion dollars. Or as this link says, enough for the worlds fanciest house, the LA Lakers, the Solomon Islands and the Toronto Maple Leafs with money left over.

This, four times over.

This, four times over.

Or you know, twenty fighter jets for when they come for the rest of your money or declare Azeroth a soverign nation. I for one welcome our new financial overlords.
