In what appears to be an attempt to (possibly) minimise FUD, this GameTab article points out that Vivendi (aka Blizzard) are purchasing a significant amount of ActiVision and will be merging with them creating the company name Blizzard Activision (for corporate brnding only).

I for one, welcome the new Blizzard Activision overlords... Well no. I don't :P

I foresee another EA simile, that is going to drive developers away from quality game development and instead towards a kind-of "sweat shop" like setup.

But I could be wrong. I can only hope that they don't become an "EA-like" managed company, although it would be nice to a Diablo-based MMORPG in the near future :)
