Several gaming publications have announced a boycott of Activision Blizzard over sexual harassment in the company

The chief editors of several gaming publications have announced a boycott of Activision Blizzard. A number of portals declined to cover the company’s games amid litigation against the culture of “brotherhood” and sexual harassment within the studio.

The existence of both Activision and Blizzard decided to “forget” the journalists The Gamer, Prima Games, Switch Player, Cinelinx and Ninty Fresh. It is noteworthy that The Gamer is part of the Valnet holding, which also includes other game publications: ScreenRant, CBR, GameRant and so on. None of them has yet announced about joining the boycott.

What’s going on with Activision Blizzard? This week, a California court filed a lawsuit against the company, which featured numerous incidents of internal harassment. It was stated that the prevailing culture of “brotherhood” is to blame. The leaders promised that they would deal with the situation.

Prima Games and Switch Player have not bypassed Ubisoft – they also decided to temporarily exclude it from the information field. And this is against the backdrop of how the French union Solidaires Informatique filed a class action lawsuit against the company. It says that the studio management has repeatedly turned a blind eye to sexual harassment from employees and for a whole year there have been no significant changes.
