Activision Blizzard has released its financials for its Q2 FY17 for the three months ending June 30th 2017.
It posted revenues of $1.63 billion for the quarter, up 3.9% year-on-year. Profits also rose by 46% to $339 million in Q2.
King made up 29% of Activision Blizzard's overall revenues, generating $480 million in the quarter, down 1% year-on-year. Profits also fell by 7% to $164 million for the period.
Its games continue to perform well, holding two top grossing positions in the US for 15 consecutive quarters. MAUs have fallen to 314 million, though bookings from remaining players increased for the eighth quarter in a row.
Activision Blizzard did not give any information on King's future, but the company has a wealth of games currently in soft launch to give us an indication. It is currently working on a new Candy Crush entry, Candy Crush Friends Saga, along with another Farm Heroes game.
King is also exploring midcore again with three different games – Brick Wizard, Stellar: Galaxy Commander, and Legend of Solgard. It is also currently prototyping a Call of Duty mobile game, though it is still a long way off release.
