J. Allen Brack resigns as President of Blizzard Entertainment, to be replaced by Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra
On July 20th, California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard collecting “numerous complaints about unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation” at the company. Shortly afterwards, more than 3,000 Activision Blizzard employees signed an open letter to management speaking up for victims and making a call for “official statements that recognize the seriousness of the allegations and demonstrate compassion for victims of harassment and assault.”
Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick promised a rapid response. Today Blizzard has announced that J. Allen Brack is leaving his position as the president of the studio, to be replaced by Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra as co-heads of the studio.
Divine Alliance of Mok’Nathal stand in solidarity with all employees at Blizzard who have been affected by the company’s actions and policies that have created an unsafe and unhealthy working environment.
