I worked at a place where the "culture" was close enough to this, it never got this far, as far as I know. However, guys would post animated gifs of topless girls dancing in the company chat, and generally be unprofessional around the girls, to say the least.One female employee committed suicide on a work trip after her nudes were passed around the office.
Pretty fucked up stuff. Note that this is no vague accusation. This was a 2 year investigation done by the State of California.
Sadly I prefer Diablo: Reign of Terror(Grim Dawn mod) over the D2 remake. Unfair maybe since you can't touch the remake but Grim Dawn systems feel good with the D2 replicated maps and skills.The upcoming D2 remake looks great but its a remake based on the old game.
And D4 is not looking good for now, at least for me.
Oh man did they hire Vic Mignogna's lawyer? what a terrible public response.Activision's response via Jason Schrier. They dont necessarily deny anything, but they say that they have made some changes SINCE the investigation started two years ago. They also call the State of California a bunch of corrupt bureaucrats.
Really depends on how it pans out. Thus far it really seems to be a reskinned, prettier Diablo 3.How many reading this thread who had planned to get say Diablo 4, won't be getting it now no matter the hype train if it is a 11/10 banger game? I personally still plan to get it.
That is beyond fucked up
Here's the full excerpt from the lawsuit. Absolutely awful
Well given the fact this was an official state investigation he may not have wanted to involve himself. Also possible that this all was kept quiet enough that he didn't hear about it.Well i meant before today, like the past 2 years.
If we dug into most companies out in the world, 9/10 have tons of misconduct going on. The bigger the business the more it happens and the worse the findings are.
If I had all the info on all companies I bought things from I could then act morally correct to write them off. However, at the end of the day I can't get this kind of data and I'm just a consumer.
While it absolutely sucks that this is happening and condolences to those effected, will it make any kind of real dent if things go unchanged? I imagine they'll do the Ubisoft sweeping under the rug and that'll be it for a while.
From there folks will still buy their games in droves, and if they are good games the company will continue to prosper. The only thing that can kill Blizzard is bad sales.

Well, they somewhat did it, at least partially. They claim to properly address these kind of issues and that the DFEH includes 'distorted, and in many cases false descriptions of Blizzard's past':Yeah, their response is oddly bullish given they didnt actually deny the accusations.
How come we didn’t hear a peep from Jason about this?

I mean it's one of the biggest gaming companies in the world and there hasn't even been a peep about this anywhere I think. This shit might have been under the carpet that's under the rug.
am i missing something? her nudes were sent around the office? i mean thats not the greatest thing in the world but also not horrible. sounds like she was sleeping with her boss and sending coworkers nudes….kinda dumb.Holy shit!
That's absolutely despicable.
ActiBlizz is going to get absolutely fucked here, and they deserve it. Why is it soo hard to not be shitty?
Pretty much, but this sounds worse.
Someone needs to leak the full suit/complaint here. This is crazy juicy.
