Activision’s Destiny 2 for PC Will Have “Meaningful Features”
CEO Erick Hirshberg had more than just numbers to share in a recent post-earnings call. The topic turned to development, in which the CEO stated a steady stream of content will be coming with Activision’s Destiny 2. Here is what he had to say on the subject:
Destiny’s engagement has been the best in Activision’s history. We now have a lot of confidence that we’re going to be able to keep up with demand with that steady stream of content and sort of keep pace with our players’ engagement post-release of Destiny 2. As you know, with Destiny 2’s content, we’re coupling Bungie’s great visionary leadership with multiple AAA developers that have a proven track record here at Activision to help us make sure we have just one great piece of content after another to keep the community engaged.”
This goes for Activision’s Destiny 2 PC version as well. Hirshberg didn’t offer many details on that partiuclar subject. He was, however, able to reassure players that the PC community was in their thoughts. With an ambitious turn towards the second installment in the franchise, and a desire to keep players happy, the CEO was assuring that PC was not forgotten.
We’re committed to delivering meaningful features that are bespoke for the PC community.”
The first quarter reports exceeded expectations for Activision Blizzard. With the quarter having ended March 31st, the company is enjoying a new 1st quarter record with a net revenue of $1.73 billion. An increase of about 19% from last years first quarter and a 50% increase in digital business.
Among the numbers were also reports on their monthly active users in Blizzard games, which saw a staggering 431 million during the quarter. A new first quarter record of 41 million users may be due largely to Overwatch, a franchise already in the billions of dollars. Activision and King’s however took a hit with a decline in active users that the company says is in part due to Call of Duty: Infinite warfare. A game that did not do as well as Black Ops III.
Preorders for Activision’s Destiny 2 and Call of Duty: WWII were both off to strong starts. For Call of Duty they have enjoyed a greater attraction on YouTube. Meanwhile, Activision’s Destiny 2 has seen higher sales with version including a season pass. Overall it looks like good news For Activision Blizzard, and fans anticipating the release of Destiny 2.
