Activision is currently swimming in oodles of cash over at their Santa Monica headquarters, but if some is good, more is absolutely better.‚  The publisher of such hit franchises as Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, and a little MMO called World of Warcraft announced today that due to “better than expected” returns on said franchises, the current financial outlook is sunny with a high of green moolah.

Earlier reports stated a March quarter take pegged at $860 million, and while it is unclear how high the new figure is, Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision envisions a figure tearing a hole in the atmosphere.

“Global consumer response to the Call of Duty and Guitar Hero franchises and Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft remains strong despite the challenging economic environment, we exceeded our quarterly financial goals as the video game market continues to grow and our franchises continue to perform.”
