This was supposed to be a painful year for Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI). Two of its tentpole franchises are under direct attack, while its World of Warcraft cash cow continues to age. But things have been going just fine for this dominant game publisher.

The figures show that, despite Electronic Arts' (NASDAQ: EA) best efforts with Battlefield 4, Call of Duty remains the top shooter franchise across all platforms in November.
