Anonymous sources supposed familiar with the matter have revealed that Vivendi could be breaking up its company into parts and would merge all of its media components into a single entity. This would mean that Activision Blizzard could be consolidated alongside Universal Music Group, while Vivendi’s telecommunications and content distribution businesses will form another company of its own.

Of course given that these are merely rumors, it’s hard to say if this holds any truth to it, but what we’re sure many gamers are worried about is if this move could impact the release and development of some of the games that Activision Blizzard are known for. This includes Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and the upcoming May release of Diablo 3. For now everything seems to be going ahead as planned, but be sure to check back with us in the future or more updates.
