Activision has revealed that Skylanders was a bigger franchise than Call of Duty this Q1.
To be specific, Skylanders generated $ 2 billion, including game purchases and 175 million toys. Call of Duty remains a giant, of course, being the number one game on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Anyway, if you needed proof that hardcore games can still be outpaced by more accessible experiences, this is it.
