Activision employees expressed excitement about the acquisition, and some old game IP will be reset
Recently, Microsoft successfully acquired Activision Blizzard, and the company's senior personnel have undergone certain job changes. Among them, what has attracted the most attention is that Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick is about to step down, and some of Activision's old game IPs may be resurrected.
In an internal email from Activision Blizzard, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick confirmed that he will stay on until the end of 2023 to help the company complete the transition. According to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier, he communicated with several employees of Activision Blizzard. They all expressed excitement about Microsoft's successful acquisition of Activision Blizzard and were very excited to see the changes in senior management.
At the same time, Bobby Kotick said in an interview with CNBC that one of the positive things brought about by this acquisition is that old games that have been in the library for 30 years may be reset.
Due to the popularity of the "Call of Duty" series, the "remastered version" loved by major game manufacturers may disrupt Activision's plans and turn it into a project that may bring risks. But after the acquisition, thanks to Microsoft's funds and the participation of a large number of high-tech studios, Activision is likely to have enough energy to reset some old game IPs that are loved by players, such as "Prototype" series and the "True Crime" series.
