Activision CEO Bobby Kotick subpoenaed, US government now involved in misconduct investigation

asdasdasdsda.png

Things are heating up again in the latest addition to the Activision Blizzard saga. A few months ago, the state of California filed a lawsuit against Activision, following reports of sexual misconduct, worker discrimination, and "rampant frat boy workplace culture". Since then, the company has been dealing with the ongoing investigation and trying to placate upset fans, by patching content in certain games or renaming Overwatch's McCree, who was named after a former Blizzard employee that has since been fired, following those allegations.

Now, things have extended to the federal level, as the United States Securities and Exchange Commission is involving itself. The Wall Street Journal has reported that the SEC has begun its own investigation into Activision Blizzard's workplace harassment claims. The SEC has subpoenaed CEO Bobby Kotick, among other employees, for documents involving meetings, correspondence, and other relevant information regarding how Activision handled reports of harassment and discrimination.

Hopefully it doesn't drag on and its just resolved quickly, these things can become a farce.

Why do you think this? If Activision decides to just sell everything, Microsoft would be in the best position to pick it up.. but that's a huge if.
Better them than the shitbrained Activision who only focuses on boring COD

Actishit Bizzard is a bunch of human scum. Do they treat their mothers like how they treat the female workers?

I'm still curious, will they get dragged to the court because of not being really honest about stocks? Or also because of their behavior towards women?

Cause Sony is also in the buying game studios game and they already got Rachet and Clank as exclusives.

So it makes sence to also get Spyro and Crash, more Crash that Spyro at least.

Refreshing to see that this kind of stuff gets taken seriously.. I hope the Crash/Spyro franchises somehow benefit from this, by either bringing a new CEO that gives them the proper treatment or selling the rights to their true owners *ND*..

Keep them on Nintendo consoles too, no reason for Sony to use the exclusivity BS

Agreed. And we need a new Spyro game asap, and a Crash Bandicoot game like Twinsanity would be dope, inter-connected levels with hub areas to explore to shake up the already familiar/linear formula, so many possibilities...

    I keep Facebook around for oauth2 (though Google largely fills the same roll for me these days) and Messenger. I rarely ever use the website, the app is set to not run in background on my phone and has all notifications disabled. Hopped on today to list a few things for sale/free in my area and just spent more time today scrolling up and down than I ought to
