With local advertising accounting for about 71% of the company’s revenue, they seem to be struggling with growing, and keeping their paying customer base.

The videogame maker reports Q2 earnings tomorrow, and investors are not expecting much due to lack of new titles. The one highlight there was from this quarter was the “Call of Duty: Black Ops III” DLC. This was in addition to the numerous other updates to older games to keep user engaged, until new games hit the shelves.
