Activision issued its end of year earnings report for 2013 today and it’s no surprise that results were better than they anticipated thanks in no small part to the Skylanders franchise surpassing $2 billion in sales worldwide. Surprisingly though their report contained little information on Skylanders 4 other than confirming that it will be happening at some point this year.
