For example, 43 percent of the income comes from the United States of America. while out South Korea 23 percent of the income follows, comes from Japan 8 percent, Germany 6 percent and Canada 3 percent.

Financial success despite catastrophic ratings

Blizzard is currently proving a thesis that we reported on some time ago. In mid-May, the CEO of Saber Interactive threw out the theory that ratings no longer determine whether a game is successful. And currently the earnings of the game seem to confirm his thesis. After all, the ratings for Diablo Immortal are currently anything but positive.

Both the press and the fans are not at all enthusiastic about platforms like Metacritic. Even in our editorial office, the mobile title is not a revelation. In addition to the Diablo offshoot, Blizzard currently also has to deal with a lot of criticism regarding its corporate policy in terms of abuse and the “diversity tool”.
