Activision Blizzard may have spent a huge $5.9 billion acquiring King Digital Entertainment, the makers of Candy Crush, but it has larger plans for some of its biggest franchises - TV and movies.

Activision's upcoming Call of Duty movie will be filmed at 24FPS |

The company has revealed it has opened up a new film and TV studio that will create content based on Activision Blizzard's extensive library of franchises. The company has secured former Disney executive Nick van Dyk to co-lead its new venture, with another not-yet-named Senior Creative Executive joining the team. Van Dyk will run the physical production, distribution, finance, strategy and operations of the new project.

The first project has already started, with a new animated TV series based on the Skylanders game called Skylanders Academy. Skylanders Academy has some large voice talent attached, with Justin Long (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Ask Me Anything), Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical), Norm Macdonald (Saturday Night Live) and Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul).

But the big news is that Activision is creating a movie series based on Call of Duty, but the company hasn't ruled out a TV adaption just yet. Let's just hope there's no day one patch, huge DLC and FUBAR'd release of the movie or TV series when they launch.
