The developer officially merged with Blizzard Entertainment in January, where he worked on the recently released Diablo 2: resurrected. While the company has been working with Blizzard for some time now, the merger has shifted its focus to working only on Blizzard titles.

According to the report, Activision Blizzard informed Vicarious Visions employees earlier this week that the studio would lose its name. The report also mentions that employees at the company felt that despite the merger, Vicarious Visions would be able to keep its name and operate as its own studio.

However, at a recent town hall, the news was confirmed to employees. It should be noted that some employees believe the studio could be renamed Blizzard Albany, as this is where the studio office is located. While some employees said they were “disappointed” by the news, none seemed too surprised.
