In 2007, Activision became the single largest third-party game developer in the United States (after it merged with Vivendi Games (previously Creator/{{Universal}} Interactive before Universal Music and Interactive were split up before Universal's merger with NBC), the holding company of Creator/BlizzardEntertainment, best known for ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'', ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' and ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' and thus becoming Activision Blizzard), surpassing Creator/ElectronicArts. Today, the company is best known for being the publisher of the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' series and games by Creator/BlizzardEntertainment, kicking off the late 2000s music game fad with the ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' series and for its controversial business practices, especially concerning the contractual dispute with ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' developer Infinity Ward.

Unlike many other companies developing games for second-generation consoles, Activision survived TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 intact, being quick to jump on the UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}} bandwagon, and even added to its catalog several games from defunct competitor Imagic, whose advertising TagLine for their games was "Designed By Experts For Experts". Activision acquired Creator/{{Infocom}} in 1986.
