    Mike Morhaime is Leaving Blizzard

    so he stepped down from CEO and took an advisory role, and now he's officially leaving ?

    very ominous ...

    Blizzard Entertainment co-founder and former president Mike Morhaime announced in October 2018 that he had stepped down from his long-held position, but would remain as a strategic advisor, expressing love and admiration for the company.
    that is an excerpt from the article (one of many articles) and here is the official statement:

    "As previously disclosed, on October 3, 2018 Michael Morhaime entered into an agreement with Activision Blizzard, Inc. (the 'Company') pursuant to which he would provide strategic advice to the Company in an advisory capacity," the filing says. "Mr. Morhaime’s employment with the Company as a strategic advisor will conclude on April 7, 2019."

    so ... with all the doom n gloom Acti-Blizz has been giving off lately - i wonder what this means for the state of affairs internally at Blizz Ent specifically

    There is already topics on this.

    As well, it was announced to be a temporary advisory role, and 6 months are good enough to start introducing someone else to his position after all.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!
