Shacknews Dump - October 14, 2022

Meta, Microsoft, and Overwatch 2 round out the hottest topics of our discussion on this week's edition of the Shacknews Dump!


Welcome back, friends. We’re at the end of the week and with it comes the time to unleash stewing discussion of the week’s hottest news. Between Activision Blizzard, Meta, Microsoft, and more, there’s plenty to talk about. With that said, brace yourself. This Dump is coming in hot.

On this October 14 edition of the Shacknews Dump, companies are still settling some nasty workplace issues. Activision Blizzard has been hit with another lawsuit alleging sexual harassment and even revenge porn. Meanwhile, Nintendo is settling its own labor complaints, settling a complaint in which a worker was fired after asking about unions and labor organization. That’s not all, we’ve also got Meta Connect 2022 to talk about and Microsoft’s partnership to bring Xbox Game Pass and Cloud Gaming to Meta platforms. That said, could a UK Regulator threaten Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard?

Join us as we talk about these and other hot topics on the Shacknews Dump, going live on the Shacknews Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET. You can also watch just below.
