The report published by The Wall Street Journal states that Bobby Kotick might consider leaving Activision if he cannot resolve the problems, fast.

The Wall Street Journal had on November 16, 2021 published an article reporting that Bobby Kotick had not reported all the reports, including that of alleged rape to the board at Activision. The publication had reported that the long-time CEO of Activision had once even told his assistant, that he would have her killed.

Five days since the publication of this report, the Wall Street Journal has published yet another report that stated that Bobby Kotick had told the senior executives at Activision that he would be considering leaving if the company could not fix its culture of misconduct that is currently prevalant there, “with speed”.

According to the sources of The Wall Street Journal, Kotick had held a meeting with the senior staff from both Activision and Blizzard, last week. It was apparently in this meeting that he had said these words about leaving. However, from the wording of it, there still seems that he has plenty of space to wiggle out of.

On November 16, 2021, in a video message that was shared with the employees, Kotick had stated, “we are moving forward with a new zero tolerance policy for inappropriate behavior — and zero means zero. Any reprehensible conduct is simply unacceptable”.

Over the last week, Kotick and several high ups and executives in the company have held a series of meetings in order to reassure the employees that the company was working towards ensure a healthy workplace and work environment, for all. According to a claim made by The Wall Street Journal’s source, executives had told Kotick, during an online meeting, that some of the staff would continue to remain unsatisfied until and unless he quit.

Since then, shocking revelations have emerged, leaving many stunned and wondering whether to continue supporting the company and its games. Read more on the issue here.
