Vivendi Reports Colossal World of Warcraft Revenues

| | Comments (0)
Vivendi, parent of Vivendi Games and Blizzard Entertainment, announced its financial results for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2007.
Vivendi is a massive conglomerate, and we're concerned with the performance of its games business (currently set to merge with Activision), so lets focus on those numbers. For the year, Vivendi Games reported revenues of €1.018 billion (around $1.5 billion) compared to revenues of €804 million last year. For the fourth quarter, Vivendi Games reported revenues of €302 million compared to revenues of €326 million in the same quarter the previous year.

Vivendi is excited that Vivendi Games exceeded the billion Euro mark with its revenues. Of that, €814 million came from Blizzard Entertainment, with the remaining €204 million coming from Sierra and Vivendi Games Mobile. Much of Blizzard's income is attributable to World of Warcraft revenues. The Sierra label performed poorly, but documents related to the Activision Blizzard merger suggest that after Activision and Vivendi Games merge, that unit will be significantly restructured.
