Bobby Kotick Was Almost Fired From Activision Last Year

Naturally, this threat didn't sit well with the higher-ups, leading to discussions regarding his forced departure.

“I really wonder who’s going to fire him,” Vivendi's CEO at the time, Jean-Francois Dubos, said in an email sent out last May, to which Vivendi CFO and Activision Chairman Philippe Capron replied, "Myself, happily. Tomorrow if you want."

But alas, it never happened.
