He was there for 15 years, making 300k/year along with million in bonuses and stock options.

He'll be fine without new opportunities.

Fine with me, Blizzards product quality took a nosedive when this guy took over. I mean It can't get any worse right? Right??

I think it can. That Jen Oneal only joined company in january of this year and Mike Ybarra in 2019.

Jennifer says she got promoted from Associate Producer to a studio head, but i can't find any info about her on the Vicarious Visions official website. And her LinkedIn only has that one article about the merger.

Mike, on the other hand, was working at Xbox, as far as i know, but he's more of a tech guy.

Personally, i don't except any improvements in the long run. At first, they'll probably be all about «fighting harassement», «empowering women» and «listening to their colleagues» to calm people down. But that will not affect their games in any good way i think, everything will still be meh, as their recent games.
