Former Blizzard President Mike Morhaime To Leave Company In April

Recommended Posts


In October last year, Mike Morhaime, former founder and president of Blizzard, decided to step down from his position as the head of the prestigious developer. J. Allen Brack took over, promoted from running World of Warcraft's immense success, with Morhaime joining the board as a special advisor. Now, just a few months later, Activision has revealed that Morhaime will be exiting the company in April.

As part of an Activision Blizzard SEC filing this week, the company announced that Morhaime will only be around for another few months before he leaves.

"As previously disclosed, on October 3, 2018 Michael Morhaime entered into an agreement with Activision Blizzard, Inc. (the 'Company') pursuant to which he would provide strategic advice to the Company in an advisory capacity. Mr. Morhaime’s employment with the Company as a strategic advisor will conclude on April 7, 2019." 

It seems to be part of Activision Blizzard's fairly major shuffling over the last two weeks, including a new CEO and CFO, not to mention today's announcement of Bungie splitting with Activision and keeping Destiny. In all likelihood, Morhaime had planned to retire from his initial position, but keeping him on the board probably ensured investor confidence in what was a major change in Blizzard's corporate structure.

Morhaime co-founded Blizzard in 1991 as Silicon & Synapse and had been serving in a leadership position in the company since.
