  • Activision Blizzard Earnings: The Good, The Bad [View article]
    Thank you for your answer.

    I would also like to point out another interesting feature of Battle.net 2.0 that will be released ~1 year after the initial launch in July 2010: users will be able to sell content (e.g. custom maps for Starcraft 2) through the Battle.net platform to other users. This will represent a steady income for Blizzard (like iTunes does for Apple) that will be significant: custom maps indeed have a great potential (due to the amazing features of the Starcraft 2 map editor, e.g. first person view on a RTS game) and the popular "Dota" custom map on Warcraft 3 has shown that a custom map may emerge as a game within the game (with a great amount of dedicated players).

    They have not revealed more information yet, but Battle.net 2.0 may well bring some unexpected sources of revenue for Blizzard in the future.
