That's pretty much been my view of Kotick for years now. The short-sighted, greed ridden investors on Wall Street who only caer about the next quarter see him as a hero. But when Call of Duty and WoW run their course (and they will, make no mistake), he'll have nothing left because he fired everyone there who has the potential to make new IP for Activision. But by then, he'll have sold all his stock and cashed out, meanwhile the rest of the company and the people who actually made him all this money will suffer. The modern investment community mentality is killing innovation and long-term potential.
