Abandons can "number in hundreds."
Activision Blizzard plans to announce job cuts that can "number in the hundreds" as it lowers sales for the company responsible for such titles as Call of Duty and Overwatch.
As reported by Bloomberg, the announcement of these redundancies could come as early as Tuesday and is "part of a restructuring aimed at centralizing features and increasing profits."
Aktieblizzard shares fell by 2.5% on Friday and promotes the story that was "recognized by a November conference call that some key titles, such as Overwatch and Hearthstone, saw flat or falling numbers of users."
Additionally , after Destiny 2: Forsaken didn't perform as well as the company wanted, it split with developer Bungie and Destiny IP, which could "reduce annual revenue by as much as $ 400 million."
Kotaku's Jason Schreier has also reported that these layoffs are expected to be "primarily in non-game development departments, such as publishing, marketing, and sales."
Schreier also comments that these redundancies can occur most within Blizzard, shifting some of the roles of Activision properly, "further reducing Blizzard autonomy."
Although Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was one of the best-selling games in 201
Activision Blizzard is hardly the only company that has problems with it, as EA recently had a tough financial quarter and hopes that Apex Legends and Anthem will help it in the future.
