Activision takes on Fortnite, in a Battle Royale showdown. With CNBC's Josh Lipton and Melissa Lee, and the Fast Money traders, Steve Grasso, Brian Kelly, Dan Nathan and Guy Adami.
Activision Blizzard Inc.’s recent stock gains may be a sign that the company’s new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is ready to take on Fortnite in the fight for "battle royale" gamers.

Activision stock has huge multi-year growth potential through next-gen gaming innovations, cloud gaming, and eSports.

But, the stock is breaking out now to new all-time highs after the company added eight new franchises to Overwatch League and launched Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta to massively positive early reception.
