    It's all about the chase, my friend. WoW (and Blizz in general) are great targets for internet warriors to shit on. Every REALLY shit games/companies don't have huge hate circlejerks.. they are just dead and forgotten.

    So... Blizz for sure will be dead next year, this time we're super cereal ;D.

    Yeah well I used to have high hopes & trust for Blizzard. I grew up with them and the games they made. They set the standard and really delivered, for many years. That trust has slowly but steadily gone down.

    At this point, I dont expect much in the future.

    We will get new heroes in Overwatch.
    Doubtful we will get anything regarding Starcraft 2. Maybe some push for Esports?
    Have my doubts for Diablo 4, but here lies the bigges possibility of a "new" game.
    HS gets standard xpac features.
    WoW will get a new xpac.

    Sadly I think Blizzard will present some mobile stuff at Blizzcon(even though last year went badly).
    Theres an odd chance for a BR game, surely hope not. Theres enough of that already going around.


    I just wish they had the balls to actually create something fresh and new again, with the Blizzard stample on. They did it with Overwatch, and it was a welcomed game and change.

    Well at this point Blizzard/activision are so big they can just cop out and create easy cashgrab shite games. It seems like Blizzard dont need to create and release class A games anymore. They can take shortcuts and they obviously live in the short term, from earning call to earning call.

    What once made Blizzard great, and what once made Blizzard THE company to go to if you wanted great games, is now almost depleted. The people who once were in charge there are long gone and the focus has shifted. It ment something when Blizzard released a game, it ment something when it had the Blizzard logo on it.

    They wont die, ofc not. But will they be regarded as highly as they once did? No.

    On a side note.... any news about Diablo Immortal? Seemed quite in a ready state when they announced it 6 months ago.

    >people think more maps and heros for overwatch keeps the game alive.

    Nope, it makes the game harder for casuals, killing the game faster.

    What you guys doing here ? Mmo-champion is dying. We should all move to facebook. No microbtransaction and it has more user. /s

    Lmao this thread is hilarious. "Why don't Blizzard make a new game" uhh because their current IPs are literally raining cash and all of them are fantastic. Someone in this thread even said "consumers know the real state of blizzard shareholders know nothing" as if the SEC isn't a bunch of absolute bloodhounds. WoW, Blizzard, ATVI - none of them are going anywhere, no matter how many YouTubers make clickbait videos saying everything is dying.

That game really does look like the cawadoody bubble has burst.
    It also may be mostly from King, because Candy Crush made a major change in piling up extra game bonuses, you could continously play lower levels to build up bonuses now you can't do that. And King has the highest MAU numbers in all branches.

    You all know how nervous the investors are right now. That's a big loss no matter how you look at it. Like good ol' Jim says, it's not just enough to make money they want to make ALL the money. I don't really care about their other crap games especially the mobile garbage(which I truly hope fails). I just want to see BfA salvaged to some degree. This is one of the most lackluster and horrible expansions released in a long time. Even WoD had more thought put into the content.

    As an investor ATVI looks great. Company is fine as is. Potential massive upside with future Warcraft Pokémon Go.

    As an old school gamer Blizzard is 100% dead though.

    I just grabbed FF because it's got a very similar shop to wow.
    Good comparison.

    The prices are almost double for every single one.

    Lol are people seriously trying to suggest people are claiming "Blizzard is dying" in this thread just because we pointed out the fact MAUs dropped?

    They are NOT dying at all.

    But again if you lose nearly 20% of your players over all your games in 6 months then there's something going on. That's not out of the ordinary when content is being thrown out for those games.

    The FPS genre was new to them but in the end Overwatch is just a 6v6 simplified version of TF2.

    But you're right. I wonder when was the last time Blizzard innovated...

    As a professional investor let me assure you that atvi is NOT a good buy. It’s ea and ttwo are better buys within the sector.

    Take atvi for example: they are a company reliant on two aging franchises (cod and wow) and both have hit new low points with fans and will likely see falloff year over year. Their failure is not investing in new gamers for the future.

    Ttwo has red dead, gta, and borderlands for 2019. Ea has fifa and made ultimate team money (don’t sleep on that $) while atvi has... wow classic and mw4? Atvi has nothing for 2019 that is gonna bring in big money

    As both a pro stockholder and gamer; there is a small nugget of truth that gamers will be more in tune with game companies and news than stock investors. Many of my stock friends mocked my hard for getting into game stocks last decade but I sold last October and would caution against investing in atvi. Ea and ttwo are worth holding because of their steady cash flow for the foreseeable future, but atvi is in a world of hurt.

    Blizzard is actually the one good performer in the atvi portfolio. Not all of them are winners though and the only game profitable for Blizz atm is wow. Which will need heavy investment to win people back. Secondly, as expensive as wow classic is to redevelop they will never see that money recouped because it comes with our current sub fee

    The issue with atvi vs something like ea, is that atvi put all of its hopes in a few franchises that are inevitably fading away. Bo4 is the most despised cod ever, and even though it sold a lot at launch, it’s prwctically dead now online and only there to abuse whales. Wow and cod aren’t popular enough or gaining ground anymore, and since they legit have no other title worth playing in 2019, they are a poor investment.

    Meanwhile, ea has madden and fifa ultimate teams which each generate more money than cod and wow combined. Atvi doesn’t have the luxury of sports titles to carry them yearly. Even ttwo is a better investment from a pure investment standpoint.

    Atvi does not really have a major aaa title this year not named wow classic or cod mw4 and that’s a disaster for shareholders
