If the whole Microsoft buyout thing fails it’s likely blizzard will have all the financial reasons to just split off activision entirely as they do have their own subset of investors and it’s clear that the joint with the company isn’t actually doing anything to promote blizzards reputation nor its profits due to its dead community

I wouldn’t be too surprised if somewhere during diablo 4 or dragon flight something major erupts at A to B and just sees blizzard gaining either increased control to maintain itself or splitting off entirely leaving activision with just its only developed IP call of duty especially considering after Warcraft 3 reforged dropped it was documented that blizzards marketing sector was cut off and parts of head management overall were replaced with either industry veterans or just someone not tied to activision. What do you think?

Blizzard has lost most of its developers so even if it went independent, it would still not be able to produce a worthwhile game.

Didn’t they literally just buy out an entire studio this year

Yeah i think it was the one that made spell break, obviously those devs still need training and a marketing team still needs to be present but realistically to make even one game with how low standards are these days they really wouldn’t have much trouble pulling it off

Not him but if that breakup happens it NEEDs to happen soon. Blizzard as a studio is even worse off than it was as a subsidiary of vivendi during its collapse despite the increased wealth the studio has. the influence of activision coupled with the increasing alienation from their community has sent that studio into a decade long down spiral of bad update after bad game after bad PR nightmare while all their partner can do is fuck up their employees and milk cod while ignoring everything else the two studios have made.

It’s clear after the nightmare that was BFA which was considered to be the worst expansion ever made the devs won and a serious push to be better was implemented with lowering the level cap back down to 60, releasing classic, switching up management, updating dragon physics, being honest about diablo 4 as much as they could etc but the changes aren’t drastic enough to repair their games much less repair the state of the community which has long since eroded into nothing
