Activision Blizzard Developers & Employees Denounce Corporate Statements

Activision Blizzard is under fire as of late due to a recent sexual harassment & discrimination lawsuit targeted at its toxic “fratboy” work culture. The company released statements that call the suit “distorted” and “false”, with one from Blizzard president J Allen Brack calling the alleged behaviour in the lawsuit “unacceptable” and “disturbing” while also saying that no such acts have occurred in the company.

A lot of people, 20-plus Blizzard employees including, are calling b*****it on this and are expressing support for the stories told in the lawsuit. Some are going out of their way to stop work in solidarity with the victims that came forward.

“Many of us will not be working today in solidarity with the women that came forward. The statements made by [Activision Blizzard] do not represent us. We believe women, and we will continue to strive to do better and hold others accountable. Actions speak louder than words.” – Jeremy Feasel, lead game designer

“Like many of you, our team’s been going through a mix of outrage and sorrow and hurt. Been listening to one another, looking after our friends, and finding ways to support and care for each other. Now we gotta roll up our sleeves and fix this shit. As a company. As an industry.” – Steve Danuser, narrative designer

“I’m unhappy with the corporate response up to this point. I don’t feel it represents me or what I believe in. Many of us have said this internally. It feels worth saying publicly.” – Brian Holinka, game designer

“I stand with the [Activision Blizzard] victims & believe their stories. To claim that these stories are ‘factually incorrect’ or ‘untrue’ is a slap in the face to current & former employees, & does not represent my core values.” – UX researcher Nikki Crenshaw.

“I’ve heard horror stories all of which I know are true and shouldn’t be dismissed. The fact that [Activision Blizzard] dismissed it not once but twice is appalling.” – Elsbeth Larkin

At this point in time, Activision Blizzard has yet to make any public statements.
