According to Dexter, T-Mobile has withdrawn its brand’s advertising presence at Overwatch and Call of Duty related events. The multinational telecommunications company was one of the main sponsors of the competitive scene of both games.
Apparently the logo of the German company was present on the official website of the Overwatch League and the Call of Duty League on July 21. However, a week later it cannot be found anywhere related to Activision Blizzard.
Goodbye to sponsorship
From Dexerto they also point out that some players have eliminated the #TMobile hashtag from their Twitter bios and that in the last games they have done their best not to show the logo on the shirt. Lastly, the Overwatch League’s Twitter posts have changed as they have stopped mentioning the telecom giant.
So there are several signs that T-Mobile has broken relations with Blizzard. Also, it is easy to guess why. The study has been officially charged by the state of California for offering a work environment that encourages harassment and discrimination with women. The situation is so serious that the prosecution mentions the suicide of an employee due to the harassment of which she was a victim.
Blizzard employees have since signed a letter demanding fixes and changes, and J. Allen Brack, CEO and one of the founders, has resigned. There is an earthquake in the company offices, and it seems that the sponsors will begin to withdraw to be unrelated to the scandal.
