Activision CEO Leaving

I don't know about you but, if I was making the kind of money this guy was, you'd need dynamite to get me out out of the CEO chair. As always, thanks to Blue's News for all the gaming news.

After serving for eight years as the CEO of Activision, Eric Hirshberg has decided to leave the company at the conclusion of his contract on March 31st, 2018. Eric has had a great run, has delivered many historic successes and is departing on a high note after a great year in 2017. As of December 21, 2017, Call of Duty®: WWII and Destiny 2 were the #1 and #2 top-selling console games of 2017 in North America, based on revenue. Additionally, Call of Duty was the top video game franchise for the ninth year in a row in North America, and eight of the last nine years globally, based on revenue.
