Overwatch 2 & Diablo IV Are Not Coming In 2021

During the company’s fourth-quarter financial results conference call, Activision Blizzard CFO and president of emerging businesses Dennis M. Durkin confirmed that Overwatch 2 and Diablo IV will not launch in 2021. He also confirmed that we’re getting a new Call Of Duty title in 2021

Here are some of the highlights from the meeting (via Gematsu):

  • “We have a substantial opportunity to continue migrating the community of Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War as well as another strong premium Call Of Duty release planned for Q4 in 2021.”

 

  • “We expect Blizzard’s net bookings to grow, given the momentum in World Of Warcraft and the other initiatives we have in the business. Our outlook does not include Diablo IV or Overwatch 2 launching in 2021. And while Diablo Immortal is progressing well and we anticipate its launch later this year, we don’t have any material contribution from the title in our outlook presently.”

 

  • “Our pipeline has never been stronger, and as we look beyond 2021 and plan for 2022, we are looking forward to delivering some of the most eagerly anticipated content in the industry. In addition to our regular cadence of content across Call Of Duty, World Of Warcraft, and Candy Crush, we expect Blizzard to release major new titles across console, PC, and mobile, contributing to another step change in financial performance for the company next year.”

 

  • “Across our three biggest franchises (Call Of Duty, World Of Warcraft, and Candy Crush), we have great momentum. And we have a few other things up our sleeve in terms of remastered content that we’ll unveil in due course, which should provide further opportunity for us this year. And, as [Activision Blizzard president and chief operating officer] Daniel [Alegre] mentioned, and we sort of mentioned throughout our remarks, all of this incremental opportunity is digital, which should allow us to continue to grow our margin as we did when we set record margins last year. So we should be able to build upon that.”

While this does somewhat dampers expectations for BlizzConline 2021 taking place later this month, perhaps we’ll learn more about these games that will tide us over for the rest of the year and onwards. Overwatch 2 and Diablo IV are currently in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
