Blizzard and Activision merge.

Activision, the publishing powerhouse behind the Call of Duty and Tony Hawk series; and Vivendi Games, owner of Blizzard Entertainment, which you probably don’t need us to tell you is behind the Warcraft and Starcraft series, are coming together to form “the world’s most profitable games business,” cleverly named Activision Blizzard.

The reports we’ve read so far seem to confuse the matter of Vivendi’s role in the merger, and who will be “wearing the pants” in the relationship, so to speak. As we understand it, Vivendi and Activision will be the ones who are merging, despite Blizzard’s name being in the company’s new moniker. Vivendi will own approximately 52% of the ownership stake in Activision Blizzard

Submitted with utterly horror and a tad bit of confusion.

First EA buys Bioware, then this. What’s next?

    It is too bad that large mustaches and monocles are out of style. How are we to stop the might of these monopolies of games without the Trust busting skills of Teddy “Tiger” Roosevelt and his sidekick Billy “Heavy Duty” Taft?

  2. some how this is bill gates fault.
