Sucks more jobs lost :( Never fun no matter the company. Rich or not they all do it.
“Activision’s part of the company doesn’t believe in community management and fandom,” said the source to MCV/DEVELOP. “They think their games sell themselves. They’d rather pop a couple of millions on having Beyonce tweet about CoD than hire a bunch of good people.”Disgusting.
I remember, once upon a time, when Blizzard's customer service was top-notch, world class, best in the business. They could not be topped, they would do anything to fix things and make them right.Activision has completely and totally sacrificed that. Decades of trust, rapport, and relationships are being thrown out the door to save a few bucks this quarter.Penny wise, pound stupid.
ActiBlizz games didn't set record numbers for nothing amirite.
"RECORD PROFITS YEARS"Lays off 800 employeesLays off at EU officeHikes up Aus priceLays off at Oce OfficeEnjoy late stage capitalism, sadly far too many people will defend them so they are the ones letting the world burn.
And FatBobby is still rolling with his cash. He's the devil.
All these people complaining about late-stage capitalism, yet supporting the company regardless, completely unaware the benefit of capitalism is the ability for consumers to choose what they want to support.
there's customer care in Sydney office?honestly not surprising, as someone who is currently in Australia working. the foot traffic in the city is vastly diminished and the pandemic has taught us that for a lot of jobs, working remote is perfectly fineif the job can done from home then it can most definitely be done from an ocean away
I suggest that Blizzard Entertainment remove themselves from Activision before it is too late. If they continue to go down this path, then they are gonna spiral down to nothingness. It is for their own good. I love this company and hate to see it being controlled by Activision more everyday and being driven further into the ground. Blizzard: Do the right thing for Pete sake. You still can come back from this and be the core company you used to be. Please.But is it already too late?
This whole world situation is forcing many companys to do such things even faster then they would normaly do because of automatization AI robot fun bla. I am not surprised its time to move out of the big Citys and do something usefull for yourself and your family.
That quote saying that their 'number one priority' is supporting their employees...wow, what a bald-faced lie! Obviously their real priority is kicking people out and putting that money somewhere else...
