Blizzard lowers full-year guidance on SCII delay
Activision Blizzard has significantly reduced its full-year guidance on the now-confirmed StarCraft II delay, pulling revenue estimates for calendar 2009 down to $4.05 billion from $4.3 billion.
The publisher admitted the slip in its Q2 earnings last night, saying the delay was necessary to match the upcoming relaunch of Battle.net. Both will now happen in “early” 2010.
The company yesterday showed revenues in excess of $1 billion for the second quarter.
