Analysts analyze: new Diablo 2019, Overwatch 2 2020
The investment bank Goldman Sachs Christopher Merwin (through CNBC) believes it will be going well for Blizzard in 2019 and 2020.
“We are raising our 2019 and 2020 estimates on account of a robust multi-year pipeline of games – Diablo, Overwatch 2, and a Blizzard mobile title – which we do not think Street estimates are fully taken into account.”
Merwin predicts that the next Diablo will be released in 2019 and will sell in 15 million copies. Even better, Overwatch 2, according to analyst, released in 2020, will sell 20 million ex.
The numbers are not unreasonable, but guesses about Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 are of course only guesses. One could wonder if we get something like Overwatch 2 when Blizzard can do “a WoW” and upgrade the game year to year with new heroes, courses and other news.
