This Week In News: Do Video Game Companies Care About Your Political Activism?

First up, here’s the gaming news recap for the week of 31st May to 5th June.

Apart from the weekly news recap, we’ve also added our 2 cents on companies suddenly caring about people’s political agenda right after the past weekend’s protests and riots. Head to 4:43 for our op-ed.

Long story short: It’s great that companies are speaking up and doing certain actions while reading the room. But remember: after the dust settles, they are still companies. They value brand loyalty and bottom dollars above everything else.

As WWE’s Stephanie McMahon accidentally said online (paraphrased, FYI), philanthropy is the future of business. It’s fine to don the charitable hat at times. But remember, the internet never, ever forgets.

Here are some examples of companies doing some questionable things that highlights their previous political standings less than year prior to the current s***show.



Go ahead and tweet about their messages. Support them and donate to their suggested charities. Laud about what they’re doing with the initiatives they’re pulling off for charity. But just keep in mind; as opportunistic plans go, it’s a marketing and PR win.
