Activision Blizzard, one of the most significant and recent acquisitions in the gaming world, has been at the forefront of entertainment for decades. With a company that spans several different platforms and can boast cult favorites like Guitar Hero to blockbuster hits such as Call of Duty, Activision Blizzard doesn’t mess around with quality entertainment.
It’s no surprise, then, that was acquired by Vivendi Games, who previously owned Blizzard Entertainment, the makers of World of Warcraft. With such a promising acquisition in the mix and a company such as Vivendi Games behind it, it looks like it will only keep growing over time as they continue to expand its reach to new platforms and audiences alike.
As it’s newest acquisition, Vivendi Games announced a host of new projects to be put into production. While none of the teaser titles have been revealed just yet, we did get to see some information on titles that are up and running. The first of these was Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void, a follow-up to Starcraft 2 and the third installment in the Starcraft series. With the announcement, Blizzard brought in Diablo 3‘s executive producer David Brevik who revealed that Blizzard would be working alongside Activision Blizzard in creating a fantastic experience for all gamers.
With Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void, Blizzard and have already begun the development of a new game, which is currently codenamed “Guitar Hero 6”. Although Blizzard has yet to reveal what they have in store for this one, they did mention that they will be looking to bring a larger gaming community into their fold with the new Guitar Hero project.
As far as Call of Duty is concerned, Activision revealed that they would be working alongside Infinity Ward to create a new version of Call of Duty for release later this year, much like Modern Warfare 3.
