Microsoft Cuts 1,900 Jobs in Gaming, Including at Activision

Microsoft Corp. will lay off 1,900 people across its video-game divisions including at Activision Blizzard, which it purchased for $69 billion in an acquisition that closed late last year.

Phil Spencer wrote that the cuts represented about 8% of Microsoft’s 22,000 gaming workers.

Blizzard Entertainment is also making big changes, parting ways with President Mike Ybarra and Chief Design Officer Allen Adham, the company’s co-founder.

The moves arrive just three months after Microsoft finalized the Activision Blizzard acquisition.
