Blizzard Entertainment has posted a frequently asked questions document on its web site in which it sends out one clear message: It's business as usual.
Many of the questions relate to whether or not the merger between Vivendi Games and Activision would impact the company or its games, and according to the FAQ even the company's brand will remain the same to consumers.
"We do not anticipate any difference in Blizzard's operations as a result of the combination. Joining forces with Activision will create a stronger and more diversified company that we anticipate will benefit and strengthen both brands."
Additionally the document stated that no management or office changes were on the cards, and its game release schedule would remain unaffected.
It ended by noting that the deal was subject to shareholder approval, and that it would be unlikely to be finalised before mid 2008.
