Passing images of a girls vagina around.... after she killed herself - fucking classy :l

Pretty sure this is going to be a domino effect, more will come out.

Now this should attract genuine outrage (if true)

Yikes... keep digging that hole deeper Blizzard. J. Allen Brack is going to step down, I guarantee it... there's no way that slimy cunt gets away with this given he was named in that lawsuit as not doing much to stop it.

Bye bye Blizzard. Only way they can recover is to sever ties with people involved and anyone linked to them. Clean the house out. Not good for fans of the franchises.

J Allen Brack steps down - first head to roll it seems... not enough, far from it.

To all members of the Blizzard Community,

We want to let you know about an important leadership change at Blizzard Entertainment.

Starting today, J. Allen Brack will be stepping down as the leader of the studio, and Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra will co-lead Blizzard moving forward.

Jen joined Blizzard in January as executive vice president of development, where she’s been providing senior development leadership and support to the Diablo and Overwatch franchises. Jen is the former head of Vicarious Visions (which is now part of Blizzard Entertainment).

After many years at XBOX, Mike joined the company in 2019 as the executive vice president and general manager of platform and technology, where he’s been overseeing the evolution of Battle.net and our development services organization.

Jen and Mike have more than three decades of gaming industry experience between them. Moving forward, they will share responsibilities over game development and company operations.

Both leaders are deeply committed to all of our employees; to the work ahead to ensure Blizzard is the safest, most welcoming workplace possible for women, and people of any gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or background; to upholding and reinforcing our values; and to rebuilding your trust. With their many years of industry experience and deep commitment to integrity and inclusivity, Jen and Mike will lead Blizzard with care, compassion, and a dedication to excellence. You’ll hear more from Jen and Mike soon.

The following is a message from J. Allen Brack:

“I am confident that Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra will provide the leadership Blizzard needs to realize its full potential and will accelerate the pace of change. I anticipate they will do so with passion and enthusiasm and that they can be trusted to lead with the highest levels of integrity and commitment to the components of our culture that make Blizzard so special.”

Finally, thank you all for being a part of the Blizzard community, and for your passion and determination for safety and equality for all.

I said from the start the only way they keep the company going is to entirely replace the upper management. Including the entire HR and Compliance teams who did nothing despite reports.

Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are "Evaluating" their relationship with Acti/Blizz and publicly condemned Bobby Kotick's actions.

If they turn around and go "We won't allow your games on our systems anymore" Acti/Blizz are fucked.

They won't though. It's just marketing, unfortunately.

I wouldn't be so sure, a massive chunk of their revenue comes from console sales of the Call of Duty franchise - investors will abandon the ship if the big 3 stop them from selling COD on their stores. Kotick is finished.
