"Activision and Vivendi have merged their games businesses to form a new company called Activision Blizzard".
Inventive name isnt it!
Don’t think this was expected at all, in fact I remember reading an article by some ea guy saying the cherry picks of the industry had already been had and big mergers were less likely going forward. Blindsided much? Plus it happened on a Sunday.
Hasn’t effected the EA share price much (a dollar off open) which is even more unexpected, I would have expected some reactionay dip.
