Activision Blizzard, Inc., formerly Activision, Inc., is the American holding company for Activision and Blizzard Entertainment. It is said that it is the only publisher that has "leading market positions across all categories" of the video game industry. Activision Blizzard is the world's second-largest gaming company by revenue after Nintendo.

The rest of the shares were held by institutional and private investors and continue to be traded on the NASDAQ stock market, for the first 10 trading days post closing as ATVID, and subsequently as ATVI. Jean-Bernard Levy will replace RenA(C) Penisson as chairman of Activision Blizzard.

The merger makes Activision parent company of Vivendi Games' former divisions.
While Blizzard retained its autonomy and corporate leadership, other Vivendi Games divisions did not. For example, long-time label Sierra ceased operation. With the merger, there was a rumor that if a Sierra pro
