The misadventures within Activision Blizzard. After the accusations of sexual harassment, revenge porn and workplace abuse received from Californian DFEH, the software house is slowly losing its leading figures. Starting from the now ex-CEO J. Allen Brack, Blizzard must say goodbye to three veterans: Jesse McCree, Jonathan LeCraft e Luis Barriga.
To confirm the departure of the lead designer and game director of Diablo 4, and later by the senior designer of World of Warcraft was Blizzard herself in response to the first reports published by Kotaku.
“We can confirm that Luis Barriga, Jesse McCree and Jonathan LeCraft are no longer part of the company. We have already got a talented team of developers in motion and new leaders have been assigned to the appropriate positions. We are confident in our ability to continue to create and deliver incredible experiences to our players, to move forward and ensure a healthy and productive work environment. "
Meanwhile, other sources close to Kotaku hint at a potential abandonment of Cory Stockton, another lead game designer within Blizzard.
