The company co-founder apologizes in wake of Activision Blizzard lawsuit.
I am starting to understanding the mediocrity these companies like Activision, Blizzard, riot, ubisoft etc. release the last years. Some of the reports mention main employees that are drunk multiple times on the job and delegatie a lot of their work to new rectuits and women on top of their jobs. Management doesn't give a shit. I hope for those suffering that times will be better soon and that whoever is enabling this behavior will get fired.
Don't forget insomniac. They had a huge sexual harassments situation.
Insomniac took action relatively quickly though about 1 employee and the other 2 involved didn't work there anymore. Still atrocious and hope the guys involved get repurcussions. Also they don't have a dude bro culture which is why they can have multiple AAA games releases soon after each other it seems.
Failing them is an understatement. He enabled debauchery.
Only women? A guy came forward and said even he was subjected to harassment plus his wife at company parties. Sickening.
No you failed cause you're with Activision
He failed everyone by selling out to Activision. Blizzard was doing fine on their own they didn't need the money but he took it and moved on.
I think if they can go back they would never sell
Meanwhile gamers yet to receive apology...
"Women" as if they are a monolithic hive mind, maybe the apology should be directed to the actual victims, the employees.
Yeah but keep in mind this is a kotaku article. They cant help themselves but to use this kind of hyperbolic wording.
If he truly feels sorry he better not bring this "culture" to his new studio Dreamhaven. Merging with Activision was the worst decision he could've ever made.
You shit bag you failed everyone, and Blizzard GTFO. Those women should plan something sinister for you, fuck those lawsuits, because as you can see lawsuits don't really do anything because this keeps happening. Need more serious drastic measures.
I love how he says this when 80% of these incidents happened when he was still in charge. He is just as bad as Breck if the report is anything, yet now hes trying to act responsible after he got caught.
Yeah you did. Better make up for it by making women characters with large boobs and ass in Diablo IV.
Every man in this day and age should know better to say ANYTHING to a woman while at work that can be used against you. Simply telling a woman she looks nice today or that she smells good can land you in hot water. I'm from a less sensitive era but even I know nowadays you gotta just stfu and be respectful towards women or get "me too'ed" some of these woman may be telling the truth while some may be lying but at the end of the day it doesn't matter because chances are the men being accused is already dead he just doesn't know it yet...
This is downright pathetic. Good Lord
