Activision Blizzard has fired almost forty employees since July 2021 for bad behaviors
Activision Blizzard has dismissed almost forty employees by bad practices since July 2021, after carrying out an investigation into the labor culture within the company.

A spokeswoman for Activision Blizzard, Elaine Alaska, has confirmed that thirty-seven people have come out of the company and that another forty-four have received disciplinary action after internal research.
Alaska, however, has denied the figure of the seventeenth complaints, ensuring that the comments of the employees included statements in social networks and that had since benign complaints about the workplace up to a small number of potentially serious affirmations, which have been investigated.
He has also added that affirmations about Mr. Kick are not true and that our goal is to make sure we have accurate data and analysis to share.
The Affirmations on Kick referred to are the news published in November in which it was stated that the company's CEO was recorded with situations of sexual abuse and harassment in the Company and that they had been hidden to the Board of Directors. This motivated, among other things, that a significant number of employees firm a petition for the controversial CEO to resign from the position of it.
