On top of all this information, it’s not surprising to see Acti-Blizz’s revenue from different platforms this quarter. The company earned $332 million on the PC side and $376 million on the console front. In other words, the total revenue of the company from two fronts is 708 million dollars. That’s huge revenue in itself, but the mobile side of it is jaw-dropping.
