actiblizzThe stats at the beginning of 2009 don’t look too great for the giants Activsion Blizzard since the stock price fell to the lowest point since 2006: $8.14 (recorded by Activision before merging with Blizzard). By the end of the day, stock prices increased to $8.18 which is still incredibly low compared to the company’s 52-week high of a bit over 19 bucks.

Even stranger is the fact that sales of Activision Blizzard games are still very solid: Call of Duty: World at War tops the charts for over a month now and sales of the World of Warcraft expansion Wrath of the Lich King broke all possible PC sales records. Not to mention WoW itself which is a mammoth of a game…

However, according to gamesindustry, Activision Blizzard was not the only company to record such a big decrease in stock prices: Take Two also fell down to $7.89 from a 52-week high of $27.95. Electronic Arts, on the other hand, was on the happy side since their stock price increased to $18.56 (an increase of 11%).
