News business Vicarious Visions becomes a full blizzard studio
Vicarious Visions, the studio that surprised us with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy or more recently with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, is now a Blizzard studio.
Change of program for Vicarious Visions, the studio that had forged the best remakes of recent years. Indeed, the studio belonging to Activision Publishing since 2005 will no longer create games as main developer, since it will now be “entirely dedicated to Blizzard games and initiatives”. A news that will delight more than one since we know the weight of the studio’s skills and what it can bring to Blizzard productions, but news that may however upset players who were impatiently awaiting the arrival of a DLC Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2.
After collaborating with Vicarious Visions for a while and developing a great relationship, Blizzard realized there was an opportunity for Vicarious Visions to provide long term support. An Activision Blizzard spokesperson
Jen O’neal, the director of the Vicarious Visions studio, which currently has a total of 200 employees, has been promoted to Executive Vice President of Development at Blizzard, where she joins the company’s management team to report directly to the current president of Blizzard, namely J. Allen Brack.
