The big industry news for gaming recently was a large layoff over at Activision-Blizzard. Around 700 people were cut, despite supposed record revenue for the company. On social media, I’ve seen multiple posts both inside and out of the company on the subject. People such as community managers often reached out or try to help their fellow former colleagues in finding new work. But I think we need to examine the bigger picture from this.
Recent news from the Activision/Blizzard world is that they finally are separating from Viviendi. Obviously, the damage has already been done but the real question is what will happen here after?
