Activision Blizzard Made $1.2 Billion from Microtransactions in Three Months - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 04 November 2020 / 1,103 Views
Activision Blizzard has made a lot of money from microtransactions, which the publisher calls "in-game net bookings" in its most recent quarter.
The publisher in its most recent financial report for the quarter ending September 30, 2020 said they earned $1.2 billion from microtransactions alone. That is a 69 percent increase over the same quarter last year when it earned $709 million.
Activision Blizzard earned a total of $1.95 billion in revenue, which means microtransactions accounted for three-quarters of its earnings.
There is no breakdown provided as to where the microtransactions earnings were coming from. The boost could be from Call of Duty Warzone or even from mobile publisher King, which Activision Blizzard owns.
