Former Activision-Blizzard COO on Web3 Journey

Daniel Alegre dumps Winston to hang out with the Bored Monkeys. Activision-Blizzard’s COO is expected to become CEO of Yuga Labs in the first half of 2023, according to the announcement.

“It’s hard to believe, but even less than two years have passed since [Yuga Labs] exists,” boasts the company that nearly became the flag bearer of the NFT revolution with its Bored Apes collection, images of personalized apes that cost millions of dollars at their peak. “In the metaverse, we fight giants. In order to reach new heights, we knew that our main need was to take with us someone who could reach the highest levels. »

That person for Yuga Labs is Daniel Alegre, COO of Activision-Blizzard. Or rather, the former director of operations, after announcing his resignation last week.

“Yuga Labs is a real creative factory in the Web3 world. I am very excited to lead this team into a new phase of growth,” Daniel Alegre tweeted.

The loss of the chief operating officer was certainly a real blow to Activision-Blizzard. But given the current situation with publishers whose acquisition by the Microsoft group was blocked by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) hours before Game Awards 2022, it may have been the right moment to wait for Daniel Alegre to leave the Activision-Blizzard ship.
