BLIZZARD is going to use its annual Blizzcon shindig for "several significant launch announcements", according to a Goldman Sachs investor note. Activision-Blizzard investors should expect Diablo 4, "a Blizzard mobile title" and a "possible" Overwatch expansion to move the needle on the firm's share price, according to advice revealed on Reddit.

But those markers of success are often driven by independent leaders and a strong internal culture. Most of these are unlikely to want to sell. Individually, they wouldn’t make a big difference anyway in … [Read more...] about The studios that could help Microsoft solve its exclusive game problem
Unlike previous years, there were no zingers in the world of mobile games during 2017. That’s not to say nothing happened, of course. Plenty did, but looking back, it was more a case of accelerating trends and future potential than headline-grabbing news such as Activision Blizzard’s $5.9 billion deal for King in 2015, or Nintendo’s first mobile game and Pokemon Go’s success in 2016. So here are six of the year’s most significant trends; ones you’ll likely to see more of in 2018 too. Mobile eSports Is mobile eSports now a thing? Plenty of developers think so, and 2017 saw long term proponents such as Super Evil Megacorp finessing their activity.
