Vicarious Visions co-founders depart studio after 25 years

"We look forward to the success which lies ahead for Vicarious Visions under new leadership and thank Activision for celebrating and supporting all that we have accomplished together."

Vicarious Visions co-founders Karthik and Guha Bala have left the studio after 25 years at the helm.

Karthik and Guha, who sold the New York studio to Activision in 2005 and served as CEO and president respectively, told the Times Union they felt the time was ripe for a fresh challenge.

"It's been amazing to see the growth, especially during the past 11 years as part of Activision," said Guha.

"We look forward to the success which lies ahead for Vicarious Visions under new leadership and thank Activision for celebrating and supporting all that we have accomplished together. Now it's time for the two of us to begin a new adventure.”

The siblings will be succeeded in the interim by the studio’s executive producers, David Nathanielsz and Jennifer O’Neal. 

Over the years Vicarious has made a name for itself as a leading handheld developer, working on a number of small-screen titles such as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Guitar Hero: On Tour
