Activision Blizzard denies report that CEO Bobby Kotick blocked release of internal discipline report

A new Wall Street Journal report says Activision Blizzard has fire or pushed out 37 employees since July 2021 as part of the company’s investigation into complaints of sexual harassment and other workplace misconduct, while 44 more have faced other forms of discipline. The report also shows that the company has collected roughly 700 reports of possible workplace misconduct—some of them separate reports about the same incidents—over the same period.

Sources also told the site that a summary of those actions was set to be released ahead of the holiday break, but was held back by CEO Bobby Kotick over concerns that they could make the company’s problems seem even more serious than was already known.
