Within the final week or so, we’ve discovered about the state of California filing a lawsuit against Blizzard citing numerous stories of sexual harassment at the company. The revelations have been adopted by much more tales of unacceptable conduct by leaders of the corporate, and now the president of Blizzard (who was named within the lawsuit) is leaving the corporate “to pursue new alternatives.”
Staff had been knowledgeable of J. Allen Brack’s departure this morning, and an announcement from Activision Blizzard says that former Vicarious Visions chief Jen Oneal and former Xbox government Mike Ybarra will take over as co-leaders of the corporate.
J. Allen Brack:
I’m assured that Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra will present the management Blizzard wants to appreciate its full potential and can speed up the tempo of change. I anticipate they are going to accomplish that with ardour and enthusiasm and that they are often trusted to steer with the very best ranges of integrity and dedication to the elements of our tradition that make Blizzard so particular.
