The lights are on
Thanks to games like World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, Diablo 3, and Skylanders Spyro's Adventure, Activision is still making a lot of money.
In a recent financial report, Activision announced that it currently has no debt and $3.4 billion in cash and investments. The company's profits are $100 million higher than it predicted and nearly as much higher as last year's profits. Activision pointed to Mists of Pandaria which sold 2.7 million copies in its first week and Diablo 3, which has sold 10 million copies as two of it's made revenue sources, but Skylanders has also continued to do very well for the company.
It's already been a good year for Activision and Call of Duty hasn't even released yet.

Saw that coming.
Now wrap all that money up. Put it in a shipping container and drop it on Bobby Kotick. Thank you for making the world a better place.
Geez, that was one quarter?
This QUARTER? lol geez
Hmmm, thats about to go up by about 2 billion or more next week
That's a lot of scratch.
The only Activision product I bought this year was Transformers Fall of Cybertron. Great game, by the way. A personal GOTY finalist for me. Shouts out to High Moon Studios; they were the reason I made the purchase...
of course, with the help of blizzard! haha!
Psst activision... look over there.
That's cool Activision, you and EA are necessary evils to put out the games I love, so I'll tolerate you...for now.
