Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg Stepping Down in March


Activision Blizzard has announced that Activision’s CEO Eric Hirshberg will be stepping down from his role in March of this year. The company giant is now seeking a replacement, but has not yet shared the reasoning behind Hirshberg’s departure. Hirshberg stated to VentureBeat that:

This is an amazing company. I have nothing but admiration for the incredible team I’ve had the privilege to lead. And I have nothing but appreciation for Bobby for giving me this transformational opportunity, and also for having the vision and conviction to champion a creative person for a leadership role on this scale.

Company boss Bobby Kotick also weighed in on the situation, by saying that:

During Eric’s tenure we’ve had historic performance and great successes. He’s an inspiring leader, and we will all miss his creativity and tenacity very much. He is leaving the team, the franchises and the business in a great place, and he goes with my full support and appreciation.

We’ll be sure to keep a close eye on this one as and when we learn more. Be sure to stay tuned and we’ll keep you in the loop.
