This comes following a letter written to all employees of the French Blizzard office. It comes from no less than three workers Unions. It advised yesterday that all employees of the Versailles office should down tools today. In their own words,
You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
How long until they get replaced by Chinese workers?
CEO needs his hundred million yea know poor guy 👎Activision Scumbags 💩💩💩 28169;💩
Record profits, increasing video game prices, additional MTX, and record layoffs...something smells like shit.
The whole world is really a mess right now. Instead of focusing on the wellbeing, health, and environment of the planet the world is focused on making money. If corporations were rewarded as much for how they treated people and the environment as they are for making money then maybe the world would be a lot better place right now.
Someone should tell these CEO's, "You need Jesus!" lol
They can focus on all of that, though if they truly wanted to and care. They aren’t being forced to ignore all those things. They aren’t victims.
Blizzard has had a history of exploiting people. This is nothing new and definitely not new for Activision. People only complain about #$%& when it happens to them. The French office had no problems working for a company like this when they were getting paid, all the while knowing what Act/Blizz were like. Have fun with the protest, they will be working for another "#$% company again when their water bill comes.
You don’t get to choose what company you work for. Only what companies you can apply to, and then maybe get chosen.
You can choose to be aware of your surroundings and realize that you are applying for a company like this.
You do know that you can say no right? I've interviewed at companies that I later turned down as they just didn't seem like a good place to work. I took a new job just a few months ago and gladly took a pay cut because I could see it was a good place to work.
@kneon No, I don't know. Because not everybody has that option to be choosy. Pay bills or go homeless is the name of the game for many.
I'm boycotting their games
Good for them.
Hahaha 2 down votes cause I agree with the workers going on strike like they should. Support the damn people that make the games not the giant corporate cash machine 🙄
I won’t ever buy a Blizz game anymore. There are plenty of other good game companies and games out there. We as consumers must punish such filthy behavior.
It's sad to watch the fall of such a prolific developer.
Activision just wants to get rid of everything that was Blizzard, and keep the IP to whore it out for as much profit as possible. Preferably in China.
boycott blizzard, they're just a company of greedy dbags now
