Can Activision Hold Off Disney and EA?

Activision Blizzard reports earnings this Wednesday, November 6. In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos highlights three key areas for investors to watch for in the upcoming results.

First, both profit and revenue should drop thanks to weaker results out of the World of Warcraft franchise. Second, digital revenue numbers will be important, as the company has some catching up to do with rivals like Electronic Arts . And finally, investors should get an update on Activision's outlook for the critical fourth quarter, which brings major new challenges from rivals EA and Disney  to two of the company's tent pole franchises.
