Vicarious Visions have announced that they have fully merged with Blizzard Entertainment and will only work on Blizzard games from here on out. The move has gotten a polarizing reaction from many gamers who enjoyed what Vicarious Visions did with the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.
Confirmed on the official Vicarious Visions Twitter page, they encouraged fans to follow them on the official Blizzard Entertainment account instead. It’s not yet known what Blizzard titles Vicarious Visions will work on, though we assume projects like Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 are going to be some of them.
Crash Bandicoot and Tony Hawk Developer Vicarious Visions Has Fully Merged With Blizzard
The focus on Blizzard games likely means that we won’t be seeing IPs like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, or Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater for a while. Many fans were afraid that this would happen since Activision Blizzard barely releases any games that aren’t Call of Duty or World of Warcraft expansions these days.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 are the last pre-Blizzard merger titles that Vicarious Visions worked on. These games can be purchased on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
