Subsequent to The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing’s legal action against game publisher Activision Blizzard following a protracted two-year inquiry into allegations of sexual harassment, increasing revelations have been surfacing gradually. Unveiling a series of systemic harassment incidents against female employees within the organization, shedding light on the increasingly bleak internal environment at Activision Blizzard. In light of this controversy, staff and users are urging accountability from company executives and management. It appears that the individual assuming responsibility is the corporation’s current president.

President of Activision Blizzard, J. Allen Brack, revealed in an internal email that he is stepping down from his position to explore new avenues.

Sharing his announcement with the Blizzard Community, Brack stated, “We wish to inform you of a significant change in leadership at Blizzard Entertainment. As of today, J. Allen Brack will be resigning as the head of the studio, with Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra appointed as the co-leaders of Blizzard moving forward.”

“Both individuals hold a strong dedication towards all our staff; towards the ongoing efforts to establish Blizzard as a secure and inclusive workspace for women, individuals of any gender, varied ethnicities, sexual orientations, or backgrounds; towards upholding and reinforcing our principles; and towards regaining your trust. Leveraging their extensive experience in the industry and profound commitment to integrity and diversity, Jen and Mike will steer Blizzard with empathy, compassion, and a relentless pursuit of excellence.”

Observers have highlighted that while Brack’s departure signifies a positive move, Activision Blizzard must undertake a multitude of additional measures to address their prevailing harassment issues, as well as make any attempt to restore the significant harm to their reputation resulting from the lawsuit.
