Blizzard intends to regain confidence: "2021 was challenging"



Blizzard has slipped here and there in recent years, and not least the entire Activision Blizzard has had its eyes on it after reports of a deeply problematic workplace. Last week, however, it was all about how Microsoft intends to buy the questionable gaming giant for a breathtaking 68 billion dollars.

Will it be a fresh start for Blizzard?

Blizzard boss Mike Ybarra, who is the sole boss after Jen Oneal's resignation, writes that the company has taken steps to "rebuild trust". You look ahead, but do not close your eyes to what has happened.


2021 was challenging for all of us. As individuals, we care about treating everyone around us with respect and dignity. As professionals, we care deeply about our crafts, and we want to work in the most supportive and safe environment possible.

The focus is on doing their best, both for the players and the employees, writes Ybarra.

The foundation is laid for the latter by creating a "safe, inclusive and creative" work environment, where employees should be able to continuously evaluate the management of the company. Whether you succeed or not remains to be seen, because there is, after all, a difference between fine words and actual changes.

Blizzard is currently developing Diablo IV and Overwatch 2, among others.
