Meretzky posted the announcement on a public Facebook status in which he said he will be working on a "super-secret new project" as part of his duties.

King owner Activision Blizzard recently disclosed its latest financial report, which shows that the Candy Crush Saga publisher has had three games in the top 20 grossing charts on app stores for nearly three years straight.
