Vicarious Visions Is Seemingly No More After It Merges With Blizzard Entertainment

Vicarious Visions, known for its work on Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, will merge with Blizzard Entertainment and work solely on Blizzard games moving forward.

Blizzard Entertainment is known for franchises such as Diablo, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and Hearthstone. It’s unknown at this time exactly which of these the old Vicarious Visions team will work on, but it’s likely it will be utilised across the entire Blizzard catalogue.

This move effectively means that Vicarious Visions is no more. The brand will be defunct going forwards, and we can’t expect the team to work on franchises like Spryo the Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, or Tony Hawk. Whether this move will remain in place once Activision/Blizzard’s sale to Microsoft is finalised remains to be seen.
