Kochikar was not convinced that Activision would actually follow through on a threat to launch its own app store, as of a December 2019 email.
We also just saw charts, prepared by Activision Blizzard King in 2022, it appears, that show the company’s app installs and monthly active users went up and stayed up by a lot after the Google deal.
