It's been an exciting period for Microsoft and Xbox with the finalisation of the Activision Blizzard (and King) acquisition.

Now, as part of this, Activision Blizzard has released a huge infographic documenting the entire history of both companies, the eventual merger, and joining team Xbox. Throughout it, there are highlights referencing Pitfall, Crash Bandicoot, the beginnings of Warcraft, Call of Duty and even Candy Crush.

It also does a good job highlighting some other franchises like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Guitar Hero, Hearthstone, Skylanders and the boom of certain games like World of Warcraft. It's so long, we can't share the whole graphic here, but you can check it out via the Activision Blizzard website.

The company also released another small statement about this exciting new chapter:

"We sure have a lot to celebrate lately. Pumpkin spice season is back, Activision Blizzard joined Team Xbox, and it’s also our birthday month (yes, it would be rude to ask how old we are). As we begin an exciting new chapter in our company’s history, we wanted to look back at some of the major milestones, groundbreaking games, and key moments from the past few decades that defined us. Thank you for helping make so many memories." —The team at Activision Blizzard
