Skylanders franchise reaches $2bn in sales worldwide

The publisher revealed the milestone during its annual investor call, adding that the figure is current as of December 31st – the end of Activison’s previous quarter. The series surpassed $1.5bn in retail sales as of August 2013, which would indicate a healthy holiday season for the property.
