An Activision Blizzard Battle Royale Game Could Be On The Way
There is no denying that the Battle Royale genre has shot to the forefront of the gaming world. Popularized by games such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite, which have each been dominating the scene lately, it wouldn’t be surprising if we were to begin seeing other companies jumping on board. That being said, a recent discussion has led many to believe that an Activision Blizzard Battle Royale game could be in the works.
A tweet from Wall Street Journal tech reporter Sarah E. Needleman is what started the speculation. In the post, we learn about some stuff on the financial and investment side of things. It’s looking like the price might raise a bit due to the forthcoming release of two mobile titles as well as the possibility to “sell rights for more teams to join its Overwatch esports league.”
However, what is said near the end of the post is what has garnered the attention of many. “The investment firm says Activision is keenly aware of how other game publishers have recently benefited from releasing titles in the popular “battle royale” genre,” the post reads. Oppenheimer then stated that “management reminded investors that the company is a faster follower.” Check it out for yourself below:

Of course, if an Activision Blizzard Battle Royale game is indeed on the way, which properties would they include? Sure, they could go the route of bringing the game mode to an already established title, but what fun would that be? Instead, they should just create a separate game altogether, throw all of the characters possible into it, and let players go crazy. Wouldn’t that be something?
Since the company has yet to release any information regarding the subject, speculation shall remain in place. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming news going on right now, check out the following:
