Bobby Kotick Is Out as Microsoft Takes Control of Activision

Tom Warren and Ash Parrish, reporting for The Verge last week:

Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick is stepping down officially December 29th. Microsoft has not appointed a direct replacement and instead has rolled the suite of Activision Blizzard executives — including Blizzard president Mike Ybarra, Activision publishing president Rob Kostich, and Activision Blizzard vice chair Thomas Tippl — under Microsoft’s game content and studios president Matt Booty.

That door finally did hit Kotick’s ass.
