Activision Blizzard has long been under public pressure to condemn the company for its inappropriate treatment of its employees. The other day, the head of Microsoft’s gaming division, Phil Spencer, told employees that he decided to reassess the corporation’s relationship with Activision Blizzard, and the head of Sony Interactive Entertainment said that he was disappointed with the publisher due to complaints of discrimination and toxicity. In addition, materials were recently released that Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, knew that sexual harassment was allegedly committed in the company.
Against this background of all this, Sony decided to make the purchase of Call Of Duty: Vanguard rather awkward. The game is no longer promoted in the store: a large banner has disappeared in the carousel of new games.
