Activision Blizzard’s chief operating officer leaving next year
We’re yet to find out if the company’s lineup will be joining our list of games coming to Game Pass, but we do know that Activision Blizzard’s COO will be stepping down before the results are finally in (thanks, GamesIndustry.biz). Daniel Alegre, who joined the company in 2020 after leaving Google as its president of global retail and shopping, will leave the position of chief operating officer of Activision Blizzard on March 31st, 2023, according to a recent 8K filing from the US Securities and Exchange Committee.
Yuga Labs has announced that Alegre will be joining the company as CEO in the first half of 2023, succeeding its previous CEO, Nicole Numiz (thanks, Venture Beat). Yuga Labs is the creator of the Bored Ape Yacht Club and is currently developing a metaverse title called Otherside, which has already sold $1 billion worth of NFTs to Voyagers, AKA virtual land prospectors.
Activision Blizzard is yet to reveal who’ll be replacing Alegre, but we’ll let you know when it does.
