Vicarious Visions has been responsible for developing some of Activisions biggest commercial successes in recent years with Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2both of which were highly praised collections of ground-up remakes of classic titles. However, it seems their days of leading development on original projects are over.

Activision recently informed GamesIndustry that Vicarious Visions is now being merged with Blizzard Entertainment. Going forward, the studio will function in a support capacity for the Blizzard side of Activision-Blizzard. As per the company, the New York-based studio is going to be “fully dedicated to existing Blizzard games and initiatives” from now on.
