The Daily Grind: What do you think the end looks like for the ongoing Blizzard saga?


Folks, it gives me absolutely no happiness to say this, but it’s increasingly difficult to see an outcome in the ongoing Activision-Blizzard scandal where things work out even remotely all right for the company and its games. Like, I’m not going to lie; my personal expectation is that between design issues and Blizzard’s resolute unwillingness to address its issues, I don’t expect the story to end with the company literally dead, but I do expect it to be functionally on life support once all of the revelations have come out. And no, I don’t think we’re done with those revelations just yet; I see this story getting worse before it gets better.

But I freely admit that this is coming from a place of someone who has long loved this company and is just increasingly disillusioned and disappointed. Maybe that’s influencing what I see as the likely outcome. Maybe you see it as being a blip the company can recover from in a couple of years, or maybe you see this as the catalyst for good and positive changes in the long term, which would be a welcome outcome. So what do you think the end looks like for the ongoing Blizzard saga?
