Looking for something to fill your time while in quarantine?

Wall Street analysts say video game publishers stand to gain from trends such as “social distancing” and “cocooning.” This week, analysts cited Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Zynga (ZNGA) as among preferred video game stocks during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Activision brings players the latest Call of Duty: Warzone (just released on Mar 10) to multiple devices, as well as the trusty Candy Crush to your mobile device. Zynga continues to bring everyone together with popular games “Words with Friends” and “Empires & Puzzles”.

Dust off that desktop and take advantage of Epic’s awesome offer of 3 free games. Right now, Epic Games is offering a trio of free games worth $48. You can get the highly rated titles A Short Hike, Mutazione and Anodyne 2: Return to Dust for Windows or Mac anytime before Mar 19.
