At this stage, the acquisition is not a done deal, and the earliest Microsoft will actually own Activision Blizzard—and all the games that come with it—is later this year. Reports suggest Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, who both oversaw Activision’s rise to modern prominence and its current toxic work culture, will leave when the deal closes." *** The largest online progressive news show in the world.
