Kotick: Majority of Acti titles in autumn

Cautions investors despite Q1 bump.

Activision boss Bobby Kotick has said he's cautious about the publisher's prospects for the next few months because most of its big games aren't out for ages.

"We benefited from the record-breaking launch of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map pack, which was previously expected to launch in the June quarter," Kotick said as Activision raised its outlook for the March 2010 quarter.

"It is always helpful to begin a year with great momentum," he noted. "However, we remain cautious about the economy and consumer spending and the fact that the majority of our games are not expected to launch until the fall."

Activision releases Blur for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 28th May, but its new Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, Spider-Man and James Bond games, among others, aren't expected until the run-up to Christmas.
