GO WOKE, GO BROKE

Activision Blizzard announced Tuesday that it is restructuring, indicating the company is laying off 8% of its 9,600 staff (approximately 775 people) as it refocuses its efforts on its Call of Duty, Candy Crush, Overwatch, Warcraft, Hearthstone and Diablo franchises.

Activision called the move a de-prioritizing of initiatives that didn’t meet expectations. CEO Bobby Kotick said that the cuts would come from support staff while the company consolidates its commercial operations and reorganizes its marketing initiatives. Activision will be instead investing more in live services, Battle.net, eSports, and advertising efforts.

Activision Blizzard stock took a hit on Monday after rumors surfaced of the layoffs. Share value has been climbing throughout the day and continues to climb slowly in after-hours trading. It’s not uncommon for investors to react favorably to layoffs, which signal a company taking steps to increase value for shareholders.

A sword has been dangling over Activision Blizzard employees since Friday, when Bloomberg reported that the company would be laying off hundreds of employees. In advance of the publisher’s full-year earnings report for 2018, those layoffs are now reality.

I don't think it has to do with being woke. They've been coasting off of World of Warcraft for at least 12 years which has allowed them to produce garbage. This last expansion has been a flop as well and they are finally starting to feel the crunch from trying to force e-sports into everything. I hope the company implodes.

The part of this that pisses me off the most is just how fucking unprepared they were for his question. They took an old and extremely loved series and ran it into the ground. They called that Diablo 3. Then they ran it into the ground AGAIN to make Immortal, and not fucking once did anyone seem to stop and think to the others "are the goyim going to see through our cheap tricks?" They genuinely believed they would be able to peddle their mobile shit to millions without any sort of pushback at all, and then doubled-down again in true Kike fashion by calling anyone who doesn't want mobile shit a muh-soggy-knees white supremacist.

Don't be surprised in 2-3 years you see them declare bankruptcy and Blizzard owners someone how buy back their company, although the latter is being very generous. No more Warcraft for me boys, they said it could never die and if you told me it did 2 years ago I wouldn't believe you.

wokeness has been going on for decades, it's only now that it's metastasizing. Older media was just as jewed, but it still had to be good for people to like it. The Simpsons was a great show, very funny, had heartwarming family moments, but still has some jewish subversion in it. Look at the black characters:

Officer Lou
Judge Roy Snyder
Doctor Hippert
Carl Carlson

They were lovable characters, they just don't represent reality. The show almost never has a black person as a robber/rapist. Instead, it shows blacks as doctors, nuclear physicists, good cops, fair judges, etc. It's trying to sell you an alternate reality. Recent Simpsons is more overt, but it was always there.

The men are also fat, though they also have muscle.

So you claim, even if they did I doubt people wanted subhuman fatties. Ultimately, unless the racials are insanely OP, the low amount of people playing will prove that people did not want fat when they asked for variety in bodies. Just like how no one plays black-skinned humans

The funniest thing about the Kul'tiran humans, user, is that either Blizz fucked up their scheduling so bad or they were so far behind schedule that they ended up delaying the release of the Zandalari Trolls allied race. Bear in mind that we're half a year into the new expansion and the ZTs were mentioned at Blizzcon 2017 as damn near a launchday feature.

And Blizz said they delayed them both because of muh lore, I shit you not.mfw people on the PTR found out that Blizz was full of shit and the new races clearly just weren't made and are full of bugs and barely work

If you've been paying attention to Blizzard leaks and what their employees have been saying, Blizzard really is the perfect example of corrupt corporate level tomfuckery mixed with an unstoppable "get woke, go broke" attitude. Nearly all of the old cornerstone developers were forced out of the company from paycuts and removal of their bonus incentives, while damn near every new hire is based on politics over merit.
Activision/Blizzard is held together by Chinese duct-tape and good will, and their good will is very quickly being depleted. That's why they're making such a massive shift towards the Chinese market. They know that they can't continue to compete in Western markets, but China is big enough to keep them solvent long enough for them to bullshit everyone into thinking they're still worth a damn. That's the real reason why Diablo: Immortal exists and why they're censoring everything. The higherups on the boards don't even give a shit about games/gaming, they just want to shift the market towards what they see as a way out of insolvency when WoW eventually dies and CoDcucks get bored of buying the same game for over a decade.
A similar thing is happening with Bethesda, actually. The highest level influencers don't even play video games.

Blizzard has been bleeding out for a while now. There was the race reskin expansion for WoW, half of which still aren't released. The Diablo debacle. Their CCG game is collapsing under power creep and their refusal to nerf or ban paid for cards. With Overwatch they spent shitloads trying to turn it into the next big e-Sport, they failed Fortnite is king because it's free. Starcraft has been shit for nearly a decade, hell they even went Free to Play. They've desperately been trying to come up with something, anything to pay the bills.

Sorry to differ with you user, but a lot of what you said isn't accurate. Here's what's generally understood to be going on with Blizzard:

downfall starts with Mists of Pandaria, a blatant attempt to court the Chink market rumored to have been forced by Activision
MoP is so bad the game starts hemorrhaging users, but the gameplay is actually half-decent
WoD comes out and is headed by a new creative director Ion, who has a wildly different vision for the game
separately, pozz starts reaching critical levels in the company, and the old guard start to see the place mutate and get continually fucked by Activision consequently, many veterans start to leave
game actively ruined, subs crater, sub numbers ceased, etc, but Blizz is arrogant by this point and won't accept criticism from the players
Legion comes out and reflects a lot of user feedback and isn't shit, but still built on a budget
Overwatch and Hearthstone are pozzed to shit and back, but make money so they get a pass
Battle for Azeroth has a beta that's bug-infested and full of broken systems and terrible design reminiscent of WoD. Reported bugs get ignored, BFA comes out
sell through on BFA is initially good, but the game sheds most of its players after three months
desperation mode activated, with tons of new cash shop entries mysteriously one after the other
rumors of Blizzard's underperformance, new CFO installed, cost-cutting starts, voluntary resignations of staff in EU, bonus structure fucked up, etc
CFO leaves
lead designer on WoW refuses to admit fault, doubles down on shit design, and so on
Activision's grip tightens
today

Short version is, Blizzard got arrogant, let the wrong people in, fucked up their games, and Activision tightened its grip on them.

mfw I actually liked WC3 and Frozen Throne and Wrath, and it's all been ruined by halfwits and virtual signalling cretins

Yup, people are this fucking cucked and videogame obsessed. They'd much rather keep on supporting shitty devs who push faggot ideologies they don't support as long as they can get their dopamine fix.
