Activision Q3 revenues hit $841 million

Expects record-breaking year following "better-than-expected" quarter

Activision Blizzard has reported a net revenue of $841 million for Q3 2012, ended September 30.

This is up from $754 million year-on-year, underpinning "better-than-expected financial results" for the publisher.

Net revenues generated via digital channels were $427 million, which represents 57 per cent of the quarter's total net revenues.

The strong quarter has prompted the firm to raise its full-year outlook figures, with CEO Bobby Kotick expecting record-breaking year-end revenues for the publisher.

"Our unyielding commitment to excellence, the strength of our employees around the globe and our focus on creating great entertainment experiences have enabled us to once again deliver better-than-expected financial results," said Kotick.


"Our performance was driven by the launch of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria and continued sales of its top-selling PC game, Diablo III, as well as Skylanders Spyro's Adventure, and sales of titles in the Call of Duty franchise," he added.
