Weltgr??ter Publisher von Computerspielen rutscht in die Verlustzone

Im Zusammenhang mit der Ver?ffentlichung von Gesch?ftszahlen hat das Management von Activision-Blizzard Details zur Gesch?ftsstrategie f?r 2009 bekanntgegeben. F?r Fans besonders interessant: Bereits in den "kommenden Monaten" soll eine Betaversion von Blizzards Starcraft 2 online gehen.

Bislang war unklar, welche Ver?ffentlichungstermine Blizzard f?r Diablo 3 und Starcraft 2 anvisiert. Jetzt hat Paul Sams, einer der entscheidenden Manager des Entwicklers, angek?ndigt, dass definitiv 2009 der Betatest vom ersten Teil des Echtzeit-Strategiespiels Starcraft 2 beginnt - in den "kommenden Monaten". Gleichzeitig soll eine fr?he Version der n?chsten Ausgabe des runderneuerten Multiplayer-Netzwerks Battle.net den Testbetrieb aufnehmen.

Starcraft 2 erscheint als Trilogie: Erst soll es eine Ausgabe geben, die sich rund um die Terraner dreht. Dann sollen Teil 2 mit den Zerg und Teil 3 mit den Protoss im Mittelpunkt folgen.

Au?erdem will Activision-Blizzard eine Reihe von neuen Marken etablieren, von denen das Unternehmen glaubt, an Multi-Millionen-Reihen wie Guitar Hero anzukn?pfen. Unter anderem erscheinen die bereits fr?her angek?ndigten Actionspiele Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Prototype, Singularity sowie ein neuer Wolfenstein-Shooter - alle diese Titel kommen f?r PC, Xbox 360 und Playstation 3.

F?r seine Guitar-Hero-Reihe plant Activision-Blizzard drei neue Ver?ffentlichungen: Ein Greatest Hits soll Songs aus fr?heren Versionen neu zusammengefasst pr?sentieren, und ein Spiel namens Modern Hits soll f?r DS erscheinen. F?r das zweite Halbjahr 2009 plant das Unternehmen eine echte neue Ver?ffentlichung des Musikspiels mit neuen Ideen und Inhalten.

Im vierten Finanzquartal erzielte Activision-Blizzard Ums?tze von 1,64 Milliarden US-Dollar gegen?ber 453 Millionen US-Dollar vor einem Jahr, wobei dazu bemerkt werden muss, dass Mitte 2008 durch den Zusammenschluss von Activision und Vivendi Games erst das neue Unternehmen Activision-Blizzard entstand.

Im Kalenderjahr 2008 erzielte Activision-Blizzard Umsatzerl?se von 3 Milliarden US-Dollar sowie einen Nettoverlust von 0,2 Millionen US-Dollar gegen?ber 1,349 Milliarden US-Dollar Umsatz und einem Nettogewinn von 227 Millionen US-Dollar im Vorjahr.

Im laufenden Kalenderjahr will das Unternehmen trotz des schwierigen makro?konomischen Umfeldes einen Umsatz von 4,2 Milliarden US-Dollar sowie einen Gewinn von 0,22 US-Dollar pro Aktie realisieren. F?r das laufende Quartal erwartet man Umsatzerl?se von 860 Millionen US-Dollar und einen Nettogewinn von 0,08 US-Dollar pro Aktie.

Mitte 2008 wurde Activision Teil des franz?sischen Medienkonzerns Vivendi; Blizzard geh?rt seit 1998 zu Vivendi-Games. Der Konzern Vivendi besitzt rund 54 Prozent an Activision-Blizzard, die restlichen Anteile sind b?rsennotiert.

From Dustin Browder

Question: "Why hasn't Blizzard released the Beta?" or "WTF have they been working on, I played it at Blizzcon last year and I thought it was done!"
Answer: Solo campaign is under heavy construction as is Battlenet. When these things have enough work done that we know when our release date is going to be with strong confidence we will announce the Beta. Unless something crazy happens, the Beta is going to happen this year.

Question: "Why don't you just give us your target dates if you don't know the final date? We promise, we won't get mad if Blizzard misses target dates."
Answer: Let's be realistic. Our target dates are not something we hit more than half the time. Putting those out there would be pretty close to lying to the fans. We are not going to do that. We want to be able to give good info, not info that we know is suspect. We'll give target dates when we think it is very likely that we will hit them.

Question: When can we have the next Battle Report?
Answer: We were waiting on getting some improved graphics in (some of the new stuff looked REALLY rough). That was finished last week and we are now playing and looking for a good game. Once we get that game the process is reasonably quick to get it out. Once we go Beta, you guys can do these and put them up. When that happens I'm sure there will be a ton of them and I'm sure the quality of the games played and the announcing will go way up.

Question: "I notice that you haven't actually given us any dates...."
Answer: Yeah. Sorry. We don't want to lie about the Beta, and we don't even want to lie about the next Battle Report. When we know a date (for anything) for certain, we'll let you know.

Hang in there. We're in the final stretch.
