ATVI

The Santa Monica ­gaming giant has ridden its ­industry’s growth to new highs over the past four years. It appears the sector may now be slowing. But Activision is looking past games: Its ambition is to become the 21st-century Walt ­Disney Co. Look no further than Activision’s heavy investments in ­e‑sports (the curious spectacle of watching professional gamers compete with one another in an arena) and in film and television studios to better capitalize on its popular game franchises.
