J Allen Brack Resigns After ‘Harassment’ Scandals at Activision Blizzard
August 4, 2021
As ‘Harassment’ Scandals Continue at Activision Blizzard, Blizzard’s President Resigns. J Allen Brack, who is the head of the Blizzard leg of the Activision Blizzard partnership, which has been on the agenda with allegations of harassment, sexism and bullying, announced that he is leaving his position. Brack attributes this decision to being among the new searches.
A new phase has been reached in the ‘dissolving’ process of Activision Blizzard, which started about two weeks ago. The name of the game giant, which has signed legendary productions such as Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and Diablo, has been mentioned for a while with accusations of harassment, bullying and gender discrimination.
The event that ignited the fuse of the aforementioned process was that the company was brought to court in California. Following this, Activision Blizzard’s official social media accounts, which frequently shared and interacted with the players, suddenly fell silent. The employees of the company started a strike after all these events. A recent news report revealed that in 2018, one of the company’s employees installed hidden cameras in company toilets. As you can see, scandals never cease.
J Allen Brack left Blizzard ‘for seeking new things’:
While the last stage of the process was the ‘hidden camera event’ until now, a news that came today had a great impact in the game world. J Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment, announced that he is leaving the company. Activision Blizzard, which denies allegations of harassment and sexism, explained the reason for Brack’s departure as he was looking for new opportunities.
Blizzard stated in a statement that Brack could be replaced by Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra. Although the company’s statement did not include any information on the accusations, the new leaders said in the statement, “Blizzard’s most secure; women and people of all genders and ethnic backgrounds; It will ensure that people of all sexual orientations are the most welcome company.”
