Where does Blizzard Spend their Money?

Where does Blizzard Spend their Money?

So last I checked, blizz had in excess of 10,000,000 monthly subscribers. Each pays roughly $15, so bliz has a monthly income of about $150,000,000.

Where does this go exactly?

We get a new expansion every couple years. There have been 3 to date. Blizzard, as a company, has released one new product since the launch of wow, that I'm aware of: Starcraft 2.

Most games are developed and released with a budget far, FAR less than $150,000,000.

So where do these huge profits go? Obviously not to improving wow. And obviously not into developing games, which is what I can only assume Blizzard is supposed to do.

Well, I imagine game servers cost quite a bit.
