Overwatch Becomes Activision Blizzard’s Eighth Billion Dollar Franchise
Blizzard is a gift that just keeps on giving. It’s no surprise that Overwatch was one of 2016s biggest and best launchs. The game has over 30 million registered players worldwide. I’ll just let that sink in for a minute. Thirty Million players. Everyone was in shock when WoW was at it’s peak at twelve million. Overwatch has surpassed it by over double.
Now, Activision Blizzard has announced that the game has reached the milestone of being a billion-dollar franchise.
Overwatch joins the hugely popular portfolio of other massive franchises such as Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, making it the company’s eight billion dollar venture.
Hats off to Blizzard/Activision for making one of the world’s most popular video games, and it’s not even one year old yet!
