$220 Million Battleship Flop Sinks Not Only Universal Pictures, But Activision Game.
Activision has drastically reduced the number of games it releases these days. The company remains focused on core franchises like its two Call of Duty games, including Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and popular Skylanders toys and games. But while many publishers have moved away from Hollywood licensed games, Activision still dabbles in them. You just don’t hear a lot about some of these games, including the new Battleship game from developer Double Helix.
