Microsoft reorogs Xbox execs as it bids farewell to Activision CEO

Despite ongoing objections from the US Federal Trade Commission’s, Microsoft is plowing forward with its acquisition of Activision Blizzard and has begun its consolidation of executive bureaucracy starting with a farewell to ABK’s CEO Bobby Kotick.

Despite ongoing objections from the US Federal Trade Commission’s, Microsoft is plowing forward with its acquisition of Activision Blizzard and has begun its consolidation of executive bureaucracy starting with a farewell to ABK’s CEO Bobby Kotick.

In an internal memo reported on by The Verge, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer bids Kotick adieu while both thanking him for his “invaluable contributions to this industry,” and laying forth an upcoming reorg that beings to blend Microsoft executives among Activision duties while preserving much of ABK’s top brass.

Instead of sourcing a single Microsoft executive to become a one-for-one CEO replacement of Kotick at Activision, the company has dispersed the duties among ABK president and former Microsoft executive Mike Ybarra, Activision publishing president Rob Kostich, and ABK vice chair Thomas Tippl, who all now report to Microsoft Studios president Matt Booty for the time being.

Booty’s plate just became a bit fuller as he recently took on managing Microsoft’s other recently acquired studios Bethesda and ZeniMax.

However, some immediate notable shifts between Microsoft and Activision’s executive branch now include communications officer Lulu Meservy departing ABK alongside vice chairman Humam Sakhnini of Blizzard and King; both leaving in the next two months with a few other executives planning to sail off sometime in March 2024.
