Activision Blizzard has been a monolith in the gaming industry for nearly fifteen years, best known for titles that have dominated the markets like World of Warcraft, Diablo, and Overwatch.

While its PC games have provided some of the greatest successes over the years, both critically and commercially, the company’s latest financial report lets on that the tides might be turning in a significant way for the company.

During the second quarter of 2022, Activision Blizzard made more than half of its total revenue from mobile games, which is more than PC and consoles combined (thanks, PC Gamer).

While Activision Blizzard brought in $332 million in PC sales, and $376 million in combined console sales, mobile games raked in more than all the other platforms combined (including an extra $105 million in the “Other” category with revenue from distribution, esports leagues, etc.) with a staggering $831 million.
