Employees at Activision Blizzard are calling for the CEO’s resignation following a new Wall Street Journal report.

Employees at Activision Blizzard have taken to the streets, including online, to demand that CEO Bobby Kotick resign after a Wall Street Journal report claimed that he was aware of the company’s sexual misconduct allegations for years.

According to the report, Kotick either concealed or downplayed the seriousness of the allegations, not only to employees but also to the board of directors.

The Wall Street Journal’s report has elicited responses from both Activision Blizzard and its board of directors.

According to Activision Blizzard, the report portrays both Kotick and the company in a “misleading light.”

Employees at Activision Blizzard are calling for the CEO’s resignation.

Employees at Activision Blizzard have taken a virtual walkout after a new Wall Street Journal report claimed that CEO Bobby Kotick was aware of sexual misconduct allegations at the company and either concealed or downplayed the severity of the allegations.

According to a Polygon report, employees are calling for Kotick’s resignation.

According to reports, one of these allegations is that of rape.

A former Sledgehammer Games employee claimed she was “raped in 2016 and 2017 by her male supervisor after she was pressured to consume too much alcohol in the office and at work events,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Activision is the owner of Sledgehammer Games.

It is best known as the studio behind the video game series “Call of Duty.”

The latest installment in the series, “Call of Duty: Vanguard,” was released earlier this month.

Kotick was also aware of a sexual harassment incident at Treyarch “in which the Call of Duty studio’s co-lead was accused of sexual harassment,” according to a separate report by Polygon.

According to Polygon, Kotick intervened to limit the severity of the disciplinary measures that will be imposed.

The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) sued Activision Blizzard in July after a two-year investigation into the company’s “frat boy culture.”

After the lawsuit was filed, then-Blizzard President J Allen Brack resigned.

Employees at Activision Blizzard are planning mass walkouts and strikes to protest workplace harassment.

Activision Blizzard Issues a Reaction to the Report

The Wall Street Journal’s report, according to Polygon, is “a misleading view of Activision Blizzard and our CEO,” according to a statement from Activision Blizzard.

According to the statement, sexual misconduct allegations brought to Kotick’s attention were investigated.
