Yuga Labs CEO Nicole Muniz to step down; Daniel Alegre, Activision Blizzard’s president, COO, to take over at Yuga Labs

  • A huge shake-up announced by Yuga Labs. CEO Nicole Muniz will be stepping down. Daniel Alegre, Activision Blizzard’s president and Chief Operating Officer, will become the new CEO.
  • Alegre does appear to have the skills to help Yuga Labs build the Otherside into the state-of-the-art, gamefied metaverse that it aspires to become.
  • What still remains somewhat unclear is the role that co-founders Greg Solano and Wylie Aronow play at the company. They recently launched a podcast, The F—ing Metaverse Podcast. It’s amazing they find the time to do a podcast.
