Yes, Blizzard is part of Vivendi Games.

From their own website: "Vivendi Games is driven by four creative divisions: Blizzard Entertainment, Sierra Entertainment, Sierra Online and Vivendi Games Mobile."



1) The fact that Blizzard is so powerful and influential to be the name chosen for this is amazing. Blizzard is a beast.

2) Electronic Arts Incoporated is now the world's second largest third party publisher of video games, and third largest overall, trailing Activision Blizzard and Nintendo.
