Following this, developers have come out in solidarity, demanding the company take action to improve the safety of workers.
Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision Blizzard, released a statement to the Investor Relations page with a list of immediate actions the company is taking. However, employees fired back stating that Kotick failed “to address critical elements at the heart of employee concerns.”
