By now you can probably write a book about all that happened during the Blizzard lawsuit. And I’m fairly sure most of you know the basic outline of what happened. But on the off chance some of you do not, here is a brief recap.
On July 20, 2021, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing filed a lawsuit against Blizzard after years of thorough investigation. The investigation revealed a toxic “frat boy” culture in their workplace. A culture that encouraged sexual harassment, and other equally disgusting behaviors towards women.
Since filing the lawsuit, the fallout has been massive. Between key talent being fired, or just leaving. More and more stories of abuse just kept on piling on. The stocks of ActivisionBlizzard also took a hit, and they have been down 15% since July. Many fans chose to boycott Blizzard products, and even protests outside their offices took place.
