Once again, Activision has posted positive results in its quarterly earnings report. Its $1.038 billion revenue exceeded the $1 billion the company expected to bring in this quarter, its fiscal Q2. According to the report, the company was the "#1 North American third-party console and handheld publisher for the quarter and first six months of the calendar year, according to the NPD Group, Charttrack and Gfk."

CEO Bobby Kotick attributed the successful quarter to Prototype, the Transformers and X-Men Origins licensed games, Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, and, of course, Money Farm World of Warcraft. However, despite the recent success, the company is lowering its outlook for the rest of 2009 because of its delays of StarCraft II and Singularity.
