Blizzard 1Q Expected To Be Positive

Via AP. Sales of “Call of Duty,” “World of Warcraft” as well as delayed expenses are expected to give Activision Blizzard Inc.’s first-quarter results a boost when the video game publisher reports earnings after the market closes Thursday. The Santa Monica, Calif. company had raised its guidance in April due to solid demand for its top two games. And it said some operating expenses it planned to incur in the first quarter will now be pushed to the second quarter.
