About an hour ago, it was officially announced that Microsoft had bought Activision Blizzard for about $ 70 billion. Now, after the acquisition of this large company, the question has arisen whether Bobby Kotik, with all the margins he has created, will remain the CEO of Activision Blizzard.
During the announcement of Microsoft in order to buy Activision Blizzard, it was announced that Bobby Kotik will remain in his position. “Bobby Kotik will remain the CEO of Activision Blizzard,” the statement said. “He and his team have a responsibility to focus on the company’s culture and, in addition to strengthening it, to grow the business further.”
“Once the deal is completed, Activision Blizzard’s business unit will report directly to Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming,” the statement said.
“For more than 30 years, our talented team has created extraordinary games,” Bobby Kotik said in a separate statement. “The integration of Activision Blizzard and this talent, as well as extraordinary collections with technology, an ambitious vision, better access to talent, distribution and a commitment to Microsoft gaming, will help us continue to succeed and increase competition in the industry.”
All this while Phil Spencer sent an e-mail to Xbox staff in November last year outlining how Xbox behaved and changed its policies with Activision Blizzard, saying last week that it was “not in a position to punish other companies.” ” With these interpretations, and according to Spencer talking about companies having to create a safe environment for their employees, we have to wait and see to what extent changes are made by Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard and their direct reporting to Phil Spencer.
