Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 developer Vicarious Visions has moved from the Activision side of Activision Blizzard to the Blizzard side, and is now “fully dedicated to existing Blizzard games and initiatives,” the company told GamesIndustry.biz.
“After collaborating with Vicarious Visions for some time and developing a great relationship, Blizzard realized there was an opportunity for Vicarious Visions to provide long-term support,” an Activision Blizzard representative said.
Activision Blizzard did not specify what the Albany, New York-based Vicarious Visions has been working on with Blizzard, or for how long.
Vicarious Visions studio head Jena Oneal was also promoted to Blizzard executive vice president of development as part of the move. Simon Ebejer, previously the chief operating officer of Vicarious Visions, will take over Oneal’s previous role.
