Sing for the bullies who lick the foreign media and which the Spanish media copy and point like the bajada in the bag with Activision Blizzard by presenting Diablo Immortal, we see that he has already told the company in question about real numbers (financial report) in the third quarter of the year with real and non-specific data.
The gaming industry the creator of the lie
We will first start by giving a brief review of the report Activision Blizzard actions now that I can not call back before that clickbait of the media.
If November 2, the date Diablo Immortal appeared, the action will be one -0.476%, it was not up to on day 5 of this month they will bajaron a -6.74%given that it will be quoted in the media as the biggest budget since January 2018, which is a lie and that they whispered without contrast.
On October 18, Activision’s actions became one -8.29%. Watch the story from October 2018. Aiii Hey Haydn Taylor, I really like you, I’m mad at you for some funny stuff.
If we fix it in the following graphic, Activision Blizzard has come a long way with a bizarre trend and the normal is that it rises and falls, making the characteristics of market cycles. In December 2017, the value of the actions was $ 58.60, quite less than the value exceeded the famous day of the presentation of Diablo Immortal with a value per. action at $ 64.34.
In conclusion, all the parachutes that Games Industry accidentally launched, simply with the intention of creating more controversy with jueguito for Blizzard phones, no more than that pyjadaer that all Spanish media had replicated without titubear. The level of the press is sublime.
From now on, I will look at all the controversial news that hit the press and analyze them to see if it is a lie as in this case. Write in the comments if you like the idea of the section.
