Shares of Activision Blizzard took another hit last night in the wake of the firm’s latest financial results.
While the publisher’s net income is on the rise, its revenues, bookings and monthly active users all dipped. Bloomberg reports this caused an 11 per cent drop in its share price.
It follows another blow to Activision’s shares earlier this week, as the backlash around the announcement of mobile outing Diablo Immortal prompted a 6.74% decline. This led to Activision’s lowest close of trading since January.
The financial results brought the firm’s share price down to as low as $55.80 in extended trading.
Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Matthew Kanterman suggests there is pressure for its current titles to perform better than they are, particularly with a lighter release slate predicted for 2019.
While there will inevitably be a Call of Duty next Q4, the only other title Activision has announced for 2019 is From Software’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. If Bungie follows the same schedule is has with Destiny so far, next year will see the launch of another expansion, rather than Destiny 3.
This year’s results suffered somewhat from comparison to the launch of last year’s Destiny 2. Not only was this an expansion year, but Activision admitted the game as a whole has not taken off in the way it hopes. Also, last year saw Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy dominate retail over the summer.
Activision also faces comparisons to the ongoing phenomenon that is Fortnite and the stunning success of Red Dead Redemption 2, which took $725 million in three days and matched its predecessor’s eight years of sales in eight days.

It almost guarantees expedited boarding, nice wine, a tasty meal, and a few hours of shuteye. If you really want to be spoiled then book yourself on Emirates’ A380 aircraft from New York to Milan in an indulgent first class suite with privacy doors, its own personal mini bar, meals served on Royal Doulton bone china, and access to one of the two on-board showers stocked with Bvlgari toiletries and organic Voya products.

Up to 300 patients in England are to test a novel insulin pen accessory able to record usage data as part of a national NHS Test Bed programme exploring new models of care.
Under NHS England’s Test Bed initiative, NHS sites evaluate the real world impact of new technologies that have the potential to offer both better care and better value for taxpayers, with a view to rolling them out across the nation if they prove successful.
InsulCheck Connect is a snap-on accessory for disposable insulin pen users developed by Irish med tech group Innovation Zed, that automatically collects and records pen usage and behaviour data ‘on the go’.
The device, which will assessed within the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Perfect Patient Pathway Test Bed, is to be offered to diabetic patients at the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, as part of a programme designed to better support them to manage their condition.
The concept is to marry the data collected by InsulCheck Connect with other key information such as sugar level readings to create a new package of support for diabetic patients that will enable them and their medical professionals to improve the management of the condition and thus secure better health outcomes.
“Our research with insulin pen users highlights that, as with other conditions, injection compliance is significantly below what is prescribed. We firmly believe that this work will demonstrate that our insulin pen accessory can greatly improve injection compliance and generate better health outcomes for people with diabetes,” said John Hughes, Innovation Zed’s chief executive.
