Activision-Blizzard released its Q1 2017 financial results, revealing that the company has turned Overwatch into yet another billion-dollar franchise.
But it was the PC that surprised me, with $566 million revenue generated in Q1 2017 alone, and while it doesn't match all of the consoles combined - it is the most profitable platform by far. If we consider the entire console market made Activision just $615 million while PC made $566 million, and the fact that 'console' represents all Xbox and PlayStation consoles, Activision-Blizzard is making quite a lot of bank from the PC.
Activision-Blizzard made a decent $475 million from mobile gaming platforms as well, while $70 million came from 'other' platforms. Compared to Q4 2016, where PC made $400 million - the $566 million haul for Q1 2017 is a huge haul indeed.
