Activision Blizzard workers reject CEO Bobby Kotick’s response to their demands

A group of Activision Blizzard employees calling itself the ABK Workers Alliance has rejected the company’s decision to employ the law firm WilmerHale to conduct a review of the company’s policies and procedures. In a letter shared with IGN, the group told CEO Bobby Kotick that his delayed response to employees following a lawsuit alleging widespread sexual harassment and discrimination at the company “did not meaningfully address” employee demands, and that WinterHale’s pre-existing relationship with Activision creates a conflict of interest that means it cannot conduct an impartial review.

Activision Blizzard was sued in mid-July by California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing over allegations of discrimination, sexual harassment, and a widespread “frat boy” culture at the company. The company’s initial response to the claims sparked widespread employee outrage and a walkout that was widely supported by other industry employees
