The combination of Activision and Blizzard Entertainment has formed a global gaming powerhouse, and the future looks bright for Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI). Powerful franchises such as Call of Duty and World of Warcraft continue to produce excellent results for the company, and the recent release of StarCraft II just adds fuel to the fire.

In fact, StarCraft II is already the best-selling PC game of 2010 and the fastest selling strategy game of all time (at least until we pull in the numbers from the Call of Duty: Black Ops release). And the recent 10-year agreement with Bungie means that both gamers and investors can look forward to plenty of exciting content from Activision Blizzard for years to come.
