Microsoft leadership visits Blizzard after Activision acquisition

Microsoft leadership visits Blizzard after Activision acquisition
Recently, a delegation including Xbox head Phil Spencer, Xbox studio head Matt Booty, and Sarah Bond paid a visit to Blizzard's headquarters in Irvine, California, following Microsoft's acquisition of the gaming giant, Activision Blizzard.

Phil Spencer expressed Microsoft's strong commitment to becoming a trusted partner for Blizzard. In his words, the company aims to "enable Blizzard to achieve their visions and dreams."

One of the notable comparisons made during the visit was describing Blizzard as the "Pixar of games". This isn't just a compliment but also a bold statement about the quality and creativity that Blizzard brings to the industry. Comparing Blizzard to this legendary animation company suggests that Blizzard is an undisputed leader in creating engaging and innovative experiences.

It's important to note that Activision doesn't appear to have been a prominent presence during this visit, but Lulu Cheng, COO of Activision, posted images of the company's participation in the event.

The acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft is a milestone in the gaming industry and will likely have significant implications for how games are created, distributed, and played.

What this acquisition will bring to the world of gaming? How Blizzard and Activision will integrate into Microsoft's structure? These are questions the gaming industry eagerly awaits to see answered, and undoubtedly, we will continue to monitor developments as this new era in gaming unfolds.
