ESTNN writes: "In an earnings call today, Activision Blizzard reported that Call of Duty had outperformed last year’s game. The company saw an increase in revenue by 38% year-on-year for this quarter.
Bobby Kotick said the company needs to now hire more than 2,000 people to meet its production demands. This is despite Activision Blizzard closing its Versailles Studio just a year after 800 staff were laid off from its global operations. Though most of those roles were non-developer roles, it will be little comfort to those that lost their jobs."
