Activision’s Call of Duty general manager takes over as president of Blizzard

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that its new president is Johanna Faries, who previously spent nearly three years as the general manager of Activision‘s Call of Duty franchise. Faries will replace Mike Ybarra, who unexpectedly announced his departure when Microsoft laid off 1,900 employees from its gaming division last week.

In an email sent to Blizzard employees, Faries said “Activision, Blizzard, and King are decidedly different companies with distinct games, cultures, and communities,” and that she’s taking on the new position “with sensitivity to those dynamics, and deep respect for Blizzard.”
