The message came from the Q4 earnings call.

Activision has announced in its quarterly earnings that Tuesday Blizzard will not have a great message on the frontline for 2019.

"Turning to Blizzard, we expect significantly lower financial results this year," Activision said. "2018 took advantage of the release of World of Warcraft: The Battle for Azeroth, while we are not planning a major front line release for 2019."

Blizzard said he finished his fourth quarter with "softness for his earnings during the game, which will take time to stabilize and return to growth."

The call also noted that "while these factors will have an impact on Blizzard's financial performance this year, looking further, Blizzard's PC pipeline, console and mobile content is richer than ever, and we expect a significant addition of resources to development to accelerate the pace of delivery over time. "

Activision also announced during a call that was previously reported to have sent emails that it has cut 8% of its staff, which is nearly 800 employees.

So far, what has been announced to come from Blizzard in the future is Diablo Immortal for Mobile, which has been met with negative feedback from fans and Warcraft 3 Reforged – a revised version of the 2002 game.
