At Activision, Pole will keep an eye on all product development, including product acquisition and research and development. Lasky will be vacating the VP of worldwide studios position in order to transition to a strategic role in the launch of a new Activision Internet endeavor. "[Mitch's] strong grasp of the industry should enable him to make a smooth transition to his new role in our Internet venture where we believe he will continue to make even more important contributions to our continued success," said Activision President Ron Doornink.
