Activision Blizzard will be part of Xbox starting next year. With this, a bunch of studios and franchises are now part of Microsoft. Many wonder what will happen to them and it seems that there is an intention to revive some that have been forgotten.
Recently Phil Spencer, general manager of gaming at Xbox, spoke with The Washington Post about the acquisition of Activision Blizzard. In the conversation, the executive was excited when talking about the franchises that will soon be part of Xbox.

It looks like there will be more diversity in the Activision Blizzard catalog
One of the reasons that several Activision Blizzard franchises have been forgotten is because the studio had not allocated resources to them. For example, last year the company stopped showing interest in Crash Bandicoot and allocated all of Toys for Bob’s resources to work on Call of Duty.
For Phil Spencer, it’s important that studios like Toys for Bob have the resources to work on different franchises. Thus, everything indicates that the Activision Blizzard catalog will be more diverse once they are officially part of Xbox.
“We look forward to working with them when the deal closes to make sure we have the resources to work on franchises that I’ve loved since my childhood, and that teams really want,” Spencer said. “I’m looking forward to having these conversations. I really think it’s about adding resources and increasing capacity.”
