Default Vivendi and Activision merge to form Activision Blizzard

So you thought it couldn't get any bigger than EA buying Bioware ??

SANTA MONICA, Calif. & PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Activision, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) and Vivendi (Euronext Paris: VIV) today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement to combine Vivendi Games, Vivendi's interactive entertainment business -- which includes Blizzard Entertainment’s® World of Warcraft®, the world’s #1 multi-player online role-playing game franchise -- with Activision, creating the world’s largest pure-play online and console game publisher. The new company, Activision Blizzard, is expected to have approximately $3.8 billion in pro forma combined calendar 2007 revenues and the highest operating margins of any major third-party video game publisher. On closing of the transaction, Activision will be renamed Activision Blizzard and will continue to operate as a public company traded on NASDAQ under the ticker ATVI.

Activision, one of the world’s leading independent publishers of interactive entertainment, is best known for its top-selling franchises, including Guitar Hero®, Call of Duty® and the Tony Hawk series, as well as Spider-Man™, X-Men™, Shrek®, James Bond™ and TRANSFORMERS™. Blizzard Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, has projected calendar 2007 revenues of $1.1 billion, operating margins of over 40% and approximately $520 million of operating profit. Blizzard owns the #1 multi-player online role-playing game franchise, World of Warcraft, which currently has over 9.3 million subscribers worldwide. Blizzard’s World of Warcraft, Warcraft®, StarCraft® and Diablo® games account for four of the top-five best-selling PC game titles of all time. Vivendi Games also owns popular franchises, including Crash Bandicoot™ and Spyro™. Pro forma for calendar 2007, Activision Blizzard expects to generate approximately 70% of its revenues from owned franchises. As a result of the business combination, Activision Blizzard expects to have the most diversified and broadest portfolio of interactive entertainment assets in its industry, positioning the combined company to capitalize on the continued worldwide growth in interactive entertainment.

Meh. Neither Activision nor Vivendi are "bad" companies. Activision is not known to **** up their games, right?

Reasons why it’s worth to be a PC gamer in 2012.




- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.

- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.

- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

Jes. us.

Freaking huge companyl. Anything that can compete against EA is good really. I like Activision (CoD, Tony Hawk, franchises are usually better in quality than the EA ones).

Anyone that can stop EA warping the market into whatever is shallow enough to get them the most money is good in my books. It'll be nice to have a superpower deciding some of the big choices who make actual games instead of sports rehashes and add ons for the sims.

Definatly, but its not even remotly comparable with he huge focus on rehashing and casual gaming EA has. To my knowledge Activision have never made 18 expansion packs for one game...althought they have published some fantastic games like battlezone, doom 3, call of duty, guitar hero, and civilisation. Dont they also own bizzre creations now (creaters of project gotham and various rcade style games).

The name change speaks volumes and reveals all too familiar signs of top down corporate management mentality. There's a Blizzard "Activision Blizzard FAQ" reassuring everyone they'll be left alone.

But bottom line, Blizzard doesn't need anyone, everyone needs Blizzard.

Forbes: Vivendi To Merge With Activision

"Vivendi's game business, while successful, generated revenues of only 804 million euros of its parent company's $20 billion in 2006. The cash comes almost exclusively from Blizzard's extremely popular online role playing game. Activision meanwhile faced a rough patch in early 2007 but swung from loss to profit during its second quarter and said recently it expects boosted 2008 revenues of $2.3 billion based on sizzling sales of its "Guitar Hero III" game."

No in progress Blizzard game will change. Expect really bright ideas(tm) from Activision Blizzard down the road. Just hope they aren't as disastrous as AOL/Time Warner's really bright ideas. Failure is an all too common outcome of new global brands started from huge mergers.

I'd imagine at this point blizzard could walk out and do whatever they wanted. They are highly respected and very wealthy. The way the name changed suggests that Blizzard actualy owns a concidrable amount of these publishers now aswell.

I think this is bad because it's just going to create a huge bureaucratic company that is less innovative and responsive. Some types of companies benefit from larger scale, and others just get crappier. I can definitely see it being less likely that some smaller, interesting game ideas will be published now than before.

Somehow I can't help but picture that it'll be more like Blizzard & A Bunch Of Other Developers. With Blizzard pulling most of the load in this business relationship. I mean, with WoW having what, 10 million monthly subscribers and the WotLK guaranteed at least half that in sales, plus their upcoming Starcraft 2 release... I can't imagine Blizzard really *needs* anyone right now.

Companies getting too big is bad. But whatever; like we have any say in the matter. We're still gonna buy their games anyway.

Vivendi was bought out, which includes Blizzard in the deal. I'm guessing it wasn't a Blizzard decision.

Ermm..it's Activision that was bought out, not Vivendi ]

I just find it sad that poor Massive was considered so unimportant to not even get mentioned

Here's what is bad about the merger:

http://www.videogamer.com/news/03-12-2007-7018.html

Activision Blizzard, the new company formed by a merger between Activision and Vivendi, has revealed that it will be making new games in franchises like Call of Duty and Guitar Hero "on an annual basis".

It's a move that sounds a lot like rival publishing behemoth EA's strategy of pumping out new versions of its core titles every year. EA has been criticised by some gamers for focusing on this model of publishing over high quality new games.

Speaking in a conference call today, Robert Kotick, chairman and CEO of Activision, said: "You can expect virtually every one of those properties (its 10 multi-million unit-selling franchises) will be exploited on an annual or close to annual basis."


Get ready for Guitar Hero '08, Call of Duty '08 etc...

Activision will run their franchises into the ground ....

Reminds me of another company that does this ... starts with an 'E' and ends with an 'A'

This might be good for VBTM because now they might be able to release some editing stuff pending White Wolf's approval I hope. Though I don't think anyone is actively petitioning them for the release of source code or a editor nowadays.
