Bobby Kotick to depart Activision before the end of the month

The CEO of Activision Blizzard, Bobby Kotick, is officially stepping down from his role later this month, it’s been confirmed. 

After it was announced that Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard had been closed, Kotick stated that he was “fully committed to helping with the transition,” and would stay as the CEO of the company, reporting to Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer until the end of 2023. Although no set date was given at the time, it seemed that his eventual departure from the company was looming, and according to an internal memo written by Spencer and obtained by The Verge, that date has now been nailed down as December 29.
