New COD title to arrive in 2012
Activision Blizzard has released their 2011 Q4 financials. As you might expect, they did well last year, but lost 100,000 subscribers to Warcraft; but that does not matter when you still have 10.3 million more subscribers. Besides that, they made a lot of money, and we will not bore you with those numbers.
Instead, we can tell you what else they talked about. Diablo III is apparently on track for a Q2 2012 release, and it looks like they will make that May/June targeted time frame. There will be a new Call of Duty title this year that will feature what they are calling “meaningful innovation,” so we are assuming that it is something more than just a sequel to Black Ops.
It was also announced that they expected the release of a second title from Blizzard this year, which (although not called out by name) is expected to be the Heart of the Swarm expansion for the new StarCraft II.
