Blizzard's latest revenue earnings forecast suggests something big is coming in 2023. The company has forecasted a huge 90% year-over-year revenues spike that sees earnings jumping from $2 billion in 2022 to a whopping $3.75 billion in 2023.

Blizzard segment revenues have a forecasted 22% CAGR rate over the four-year period, and this particular rise represents the largest jump in year-over-year revenues across all of the company's segments.

The data strongly hints that Blizzard wants to release a big game sometime in 2023. The company recently confirmed that neither Diablo 4 nor Overwatch 2 would release in 2022, however at least one of these titles could launch in 2023 and account for the 90% year-over-year revenue hike.

Microsoft expects its $68.7 billion acquisition of Activision-Blizzard to close sometime through 2023 following regulation scrutiny, which would coincide with the publisher's strong earnings growth forecasts.
