According to sources close to Activision-Blizzard, CEO Bobby Kotick is planning to stick around if the merger with Microsoft doesn’t go through.
The drawn out legal process to get the merger approved has only made things more uncertain for the company, but it seems that’s not the case for its CEO Bobby Kotick.
Bobby Kotick has been a controversial figure ever since allegations of sexual abuse inside his company have become widely known.
In spite of the negative publicity around the company, he seems to have no plans on stepping down by himself.
Recently the merger between gaming companies Activision-Blizzard and Microsoft has been thrown into disarray. The FTC and Sony have made moves to block the deal.
Meanwhile, Europe’s CMA (Competition and Markets authority) has expressed their own skepticism and is asking for concessions from the two companies.
