CEO of Microsoft Gaming Phil Spencer wishes to revive old Activision Blizzard franchises following Microsoft‘s £50million acquisition of the publisher.
In an interview with The Washington Post (as spotted by VGC), Spencer says he has been looking into shelved franchises which major gaming publisher Activision Blizzard owns, in a consumer-driven gaming focus to development. As the world’s largest gaming franchise, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick moved many studios under the umbrella onto developing Call Of Duty.
Spencer quoted several IPs he was excited to work with including King’s Quest, Guitar Hero and HeXen. Activision Blizzard also owns studios who have previously worked on other classic IPs such as Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.
