      You’re right.. I was mistaken. Raynor was the princess. Right on.

    The OW shorts are unbelievable as is, just give Pixar creative rights and let them go nuts with that franchise. Also, Disney should buy just blizzard and boot Activision.

      It's why Disney got rid of all their game studios and just license stuff out

    Not gonna happen. Disney is maxed out. On debt and is busy with integrating Fox.

      Yeah, I hear work life balance is atrocious for people working on a deadline.

      The DOJ should have blocked the 20th century FOX acquisition as that was a pure horizontal merger of two massive media content companies.

    Then we'd probably start making Star Wars games.

    Could happen. Even ignoring the IP and game revenue, Blizzard is probably the best 3D design shop in the world alongside Dreamworks Pixar and Weta.

    No thanks I'll take Activision over Disney any day of the week.

    That could lead to a - Call of Duty: Avengers Ensemble... Both companies like to milk their top franchises

    Disney just got done selling off the last fragments of the last time they bought a lot of game companies. Iger remembers. Good odds his successor will remember too.

    It would be absolutely brilliant. They’d diversify further and move away from antitrust allegations.

      Lmao you think Disney plays by the rules? They literally lobby Congress to rewrite copyright law every time Mickey is about to enter public domain. Paying enough legal fees to "be legally not antitrust" doesn't mean they aren't in a pretty dark grey area.

    Buy Blizzard and jettison off Activision since it’s all corporate. Sell off the COD IP.

      There are a couple excellent Activision studios that would make fantastic Disney games too.
