Activision Blizzard Announces Guitar Hero 5, New Call of Duty 85

MTV's Multiplayer Blog reports on recent announcements from Activision Blizzard which confirm that sequels to several popular franchises are on the way. The games include a new Guitar Hero, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and a new Tony Hawk, which will use some kind of non-standard controller. "At the meeting, Activision Blizzard showcased new games that would make sense for in-game ads, including the vaguely titled "Guitar Hero 5," which included a screen shot of gameplay with a Burger King ad to the right of the note highway."

    Blizzard hasn't existed as an independent company since 1994. They have existed as a subdivision of other companies; being bought out, sold, or merged six times. See wikipedia for the full series of transfers . Most recently Vivendi (which they were under) merged with Activision. The name of this new company is Activision Blizzard.

    In short its a naming thing; the small company exists as it always has. The large company (which now happens to have 'Blizzard' in its name exists as *it* always has). I would not worry too much about the quality of either of their offerings much until I am given a reason.

    I realize they changed their name to capitalize on Blizzard's reputation, but can't we just call them "Activision"?

    One my last hopes for the gaming world was blizzard. Now that they have whored out, its down to just Bioware and Bethesda...

    If we are lucky EA will buy them out and siphon all of the edge and creativity right out of them.
