Bobby Kotick: “For starters, [Blizzard] has probably half a billion dollars invested in the franchise over 15 years. They have hundreds of people involved in refreshing the content every year. Remember, when we first started looking at it, it appeared to us like a game in an insurmountable product category [in which] EA, Microsoft, Sony and scores of venture capital investments had been put to work unsuccessfully in trying to develop massively multiplayer games as a product opportunity.”
