Activision-Blizzard (shareholders) had some good news this week, as its Q2 2020 revenues actually improved year-over-year for the first time in six quarters, owing largely to COVID, WoW, and COD. Not that they ever quite report it that way. Unfortunately for the corporation, that was all followed by the news that Blizzard employees specifically are agitating for better pay. Because their pay is abysmal. Because Acti-Blizz made nearly $2B last quarter while some of its workers are living on oatmeal.
Meanwhile, Guild Wars 2’s getting underwater mounts, DDO suffered a nasty three-week rollback, Crowfall is about to hit beta, Star Citizen entered alpha 3.10, the Fallout 76 community was on fire, and everyone’s nervous about the Tencent EO.Week in Review!
