Activision was the first independent, third-party console video game developer that ushered in a new era for the gaming industry. Activision is a name every gamer has stumbled upon; the company has published a myriad of titles throughout the decennia. It now stands among the goliaths of video game publishing companies. The renowned establishment operates as the publishing business for its parent company, Activision Blizzard. The company has a whole nexus of several subsidiary studios. In 1983 the world was hit by the famous video game crash, which affected many game studios. The gaming venture was not successful in that era, so the company changed its name to Mediagenic and branched out into business software applications. The company saw its heydays in rocketing opportunities when Bobby Kotick bought it and took it under his umbrella around 1991.

He dragged Activision out of crippling debt, revamped the company, and reverted to its former name. The company was showered with publishing deals and now incorporates famous intellectual properties like the Call of Duty and Guitar Hero series. The company has published prominent game series like Wolfenstein, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Crash Bandicoot, Destiny, Spiderman, and Doom 3, to name a few. On here, you will venture into the chronicles of Activision and their achievements, be it news or tidbits.
