  • Maybe they're about to launch their own streaming service. It'd be the digital distribution store race all over again, with every publisher trying to build their own walled gardens.
  • They just signed a contract with Google. I have a feeling this has something to do with that.
  • Yep, I'd bet my left ear that's exactly the case, seeing as they have streaming and cloud exclusivity with Google, I'm guessing part of that deal was no releases on rival streaming services. Whether this means AB games are coming to Stadia or not though, remains to be seen.
  • One more reason for me to hate them. Good that the lines are all so clearly drawn.
  • Activision Blizzard, hell bent on making friends.
  • That's the Activision we all know! In record time, too.
