Activision Blizzard has delayed the releases of both Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4, two of Blizzard’s most anticipated releases. As announced in its latest quarterly earnings, the company said that both will launch later “than originally envisioned.”
“These are two of the most eagerly anticipated titles in the industry, and our teams have made great strides towards completion in recent quarters,” the statement said. “But we believe giving the teams some extra time to complete production and continue growing their creative resources to support the titles after launch will ensure that these releases delight and engage their communities for many years into the future.”
The statement also noted that this will also delay an anticipated “financial uplift” for the company. “But we are confident that this is the right course of action for our people, our players, and the long-term success of our franchises.
