The case of Activision Blizzard and its terrible internal situation is what dominates the video game world in recent days.
Following the publication of the lawsuit by the California Department of Employment and Housing Equality, the global response has been gigantic, given the dire situation of the company.
While the audience, players of the company’s games or even the general public have reacted with a deep rejection of the company, indoors they do not seem to help themselves in their situation.
With communications from authority figures demonstrating corporate cynicism of epic proportions, the disconnect between the complaints and the response from Activision Blizzard leadership continues to be demonstrated.
This is largely to sum up the current state of play, but essentially reality is leaving us in this situation: Activision Blizzard is a tainted company and their public response falls short.
Bobby Kotick a la carga
To provide a firm response in this situation, it is time for the CEO of the company, Bobby Kotick, who comes out of the news as the most overpaid executive in the United States to issue a official statement
In a public letter to its employees and shareholders, Kotick emphasizes that the company’s official response has not lived up to the situation, so it has decided to take drastic action.
It is worth reading the letter and discovering that, to study the internal practices of the company, he has hired the services of the law firm WilmerHale, with a unit headed by specialist Stephanie Avakian. This is pretty colorful news in itself, given that this attorney has a specific type of case she handles.
Avakian is recognized for being an advocate for investors and white-collar criminals, with a focus on the economic security of her clients, as well as the structural integrity of companies. She most recently served as Co-Director of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission until the end of 2020.
As America’s primary safeguard for investors and people of power, it doesn’t seem like the most manageable solution for Activision Blizzard’s most vulnerable workers.
