He left his post as president of the company in October, but remained a strategic adviser.
Following the news of the termination of cooperation between Bungie and Activision, the former head of Blizzard Michael Morheim announced that he would finally leave the company on April 7.
On October 3, 2018, in agreement with Activision Blizzard, he resigned as president of the company and agreed to temporarily remain an adviser.
Michael Morheim at Blizzard was called the “anti-director” because he was less concerned about finances and more so that he “made everyone happy” (both employees and players). Journalists see Morheim’s departure as the beginning of global change at Blizzard under Activision pressure, which requires releasing games more often.
