Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

     The Service Agreement between Combined Distribution (Holdings) Limited, a
wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Publishing, Inc. ("CDH"), and Richard
Steele contemplates a succession for senior management of CDH. In furtherance of
the agreement, CDH and Mr. Steele have determined that Mr. Steele will begin to
limit his direct involvement in the day-to-day operations of CDH and that those
responsibilities will be assumed by other executives currently employed by CDH.
The company and Mr. Steele have agreed that he will continue to participate in
setting the strategic direction, participating in corporate governance and
making certain executive level decisions for CDH. It is anticipated that Mr.
Steele's annual salary will be reduced over time in the manner generally
proportional to the reductions in the level of his direct involvement in
day-to-day operations of CDH, as the parties will mutually agree.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
