“Our better-than-expected first-quarter performance was driven by global consumer demand for Activision Publishing ‘s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare3, and Skylanders Spyro’s Adventures, as well as Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft which remains the number one subscription-based MMORPG in the world,” said CEO Bobby Kotick during an Activision Blizzard earnings call.
Kotick continued, "Through March 31, players have logged more than 1.6 billion hours of online gameplay of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3."
Towards the end of the call, Kotick mentioned that Activision plans on expanding the Elite service, as well as Blizzard's Battle.net service in order to grow their, "global footprint into new markets and strengthen [their] development resources for the future,” he said.
