CEO

Duly committed to Esports, Kotick’s publishing giant lined up twelve franchise teams in 2019 for a Call of Duty Esports league ahead of the FPS brand’s new “Modern Warfare” release, which is now the bestselling new premium game of the year, setting records for highest digital pre-orders and three-day digital sales ever on PS4, in addition to becoming the #1 top-selling PC game in the franchise’s history. Activision’s smaller-scale output is no joke either, as “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” from Japanese developer FromSoftware was recently awarded Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2019. Meanwhile, Blizzard’s Overwatch League is going strong, having just wrapped up its second season after selling out Philly’s Wells Fargo Center. The company also used BlizzCon 2019 to announce Overwatch’s sequel, a surprise to fans and a necessary nod to the Blizzard community following the controversial censorship and suspension of a pro “Hearthstone” player from Hong Kong.
