This became known from the financial report published last week Activision Blizzard‘s second quarter of this year. According to it, the share of mobile games was $831 million during this period — more than half of the combined revenue across all platforms. The console market brought the company about $376 million, the computer market — even less, $332 million. And finally, Activision Blizzard earned a little more than $100 million from e-sports and various events.
As for mobile games, the lion’s share of revenue was not generated by Call of Duty Mobile or Diablo Immortal – 82% of all revenue in this market ($684 million) belongs to the games of the developer King (in particular, Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes). Activision Blizzard seems to have made the right choice when it acquired King in 2016 for a staggering amount of nearly $6 billion.
