While some companies have been announcing struggles with their latest quarterly figures, Activision as a whole seems to be booming. According to recent figures, World of Warcraft in particular seems to be continuing its reign of MMO dominance passing yet another subscriber milestone. In addition to that however, you can't forget games like Call of Duty Black Ops II which promises to be one of the biggest launches in history.

When it comes to the development sector of gaming Activision is surely a company that doesn't have a heck of a lot to complain about. Whether you are one of the millions of cross-platform CoD gamers, or a WoW addict, either way you are factoring into their major year on year profits that keep the company afloat despite this troubling economy. Figures state that recent numbers show $226 million in profits, which is a pretty steady increase from the $148 million we saw at this time last year.

 

What's the cause for this big increase? Activision claims that you can in part thank its MMO sector for that. They are proud to announce that with the recent release of the Mists of Pandaria expansion, World of Warcraft now has over ten million active subscribers all paying their monthly fee to get their gaming fix. In addition to these monthly counts however, the huge back catalogue of Call of Duty titles in the bargain bin is also quite a popular choice for gamers around the globe. One thing is for sure: if you work at Activision, odds are you can't be too upset about that big paycheck. Not to mention, things are projected to look even brighter for them in the future.
