For almost 20 years, Blizzard was something like the epitome of quality: a development studio that delivered one hit after the next and made gaming history with brands like Starcraft, Warcraft and Diablo. Then came the setbacks. For example the controversial Diablo 3 auction house. Canceled projects, squeezed together teams. Waves of layoffs despite record profits. The Blitzchung controversy. That screwed up Warcraft 3: Reforged. The departure of well-known developers. Or the legendary unsuccessful announcement of Diablo Immortal.

So you could say: Blizzard’s vest hasn’t been that white for a long time. And yet the studio is currently going through its darkest chapter by far: There are serious allegations in the room, employees protest in front of the company building, executive posts are exchanged and apologies are spread via Twitter. In short: the mood is thoroughly in the basement, the outcome uncertain. In this video report we summarize the most important events of the last days and weeks. Note: The video was made on August 4th. All current information about Activision Blizzard can of course be found here on as usual
