    A new earnings report for Activision Blizzard has revealed has been severely hemorrhaging players for the last three years. Blizzard specifically has lost almost 30% of its active player base which is about 11 million players.

    It’s a stark revelation compared to the golden days of “Blizzard polish” where games would take a long time to make but they would bangers. These days, they’re not a lot of games and the last one they released, WarCraft III Reforged, was a hot mess. Anyways we’re diving into it today and there’s a lot to cover leading up to this moment.

    In other news, the Epic Games v. Apple Inc. court case continues to be a faucet of news and information about the inner workings of the video game industry in a way we haven’t seen before. For example, it was recently revealed during the court proceedings that Sony actually charges publishers a cross-play fee in order for them to enable the feature.

    Both Stadia and CD Projekt Red have lost lead developers and in a bombshell announcement that shook the halls of games media and fans alike, Giant Bomb recently announced they would be saying goodbye to Brad Shoemaker, Vinny Caravella, and Alex Navarro.

    We wish all those duders the very best on whatever is next.

    The Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster is almost upon us and a couple others titles you might want to check out in the coming soon section and this week’s 5-Second Review of Resident Evil Village has Brian reliving some of the scariest moments of his life.

    Thanks for watching and have an awesome weekend.
