Snapchat redesign scheduled for release on Dec. 4, Disney to price streaming service 'substantially below’ Netflix, and Activision’s ‘Call of Duty’ rakes in $500 million.
Snap Inc. plans to update Snapchat’s user interface on Dec. 4, Business Insider reports. Snapchat has been plagued by slow user growth and complaints that its design was confusing.
Walt Disney Co. said it would price its streaming service “substantially below” that of Netflix because it will initially have a smaller library than that offered by the streaming powerhouse, CNBC reports. Disney said its goal is to attract as many subscribers as possible when the service launches, with the price adjusted over time to mirror the volume of content added to the service.
Activision announced on Thursday that “Call of Duty: WWII” generated more than $500 million in worldwide sales in its first three days of release, VentureBeat reports. The first-person shooter video game came out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on Nov. 3.
