Activision Keeps a Few Franchises But Looking to Sell Many Vivendi Games Titles and Business Units

| | Comments (0)
Activision BlizzardActivision Blizzard completed the formal combination of Activision and Vivendi Games earlier this month, and is now focusing on integrating the different businesses and franchises. It's been suspected that many of the ongoing Vivendi Games projects would be scrapped, and Activision Blizzard's unit Activision Publishing is shedding some (dim) light on that matter.
Activision confirmed that it intends to continue producing games from the Crash Bandicoot, Ice Age and Spyro, all of which have been proven sellers for Vivendi Games. Activision Publishing will also continue to develop two properties currently in development. One is Prototype, and the other has not yet been announced.

By implication, all other properties and franchises are either being terminated or sold.

Concerning Vivendi Games' business units, Activision Publishing is currently working to "realign staffing" at Radical Entertainment and High Moon Studios. The company is exploring selling off Massive Entertainment, Swordfish Studios, Vivendi Games Mobile and Sierra Online.
