Activision Blizzard has admitted that the immense success of “Battle Royale” games such as “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” and “Fortnite” has had an impact on their own business, at least for a short time. “We’ve seen some short-term effects from Battle Royale,” said Activision Blizzard. One can assume that some “Call of Duty” players have dealt with “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” and “Fortnite”. However, it was not revealed how big the influence was and which titles were affected.
Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, added that “Fortnite” is helping to make games more popular. Activision’s Coddy Johnson added that the “Battle Royale” mode contributes to innovation within the industry. In any case, Activision Blizzard has already suggested that something could be done in the direction of “Battle Royale”.
