Activision, harassment did not leave Xbox indifferent: actions already taken

Activision, harassment did not leave Xbox indifferent

The first consequences of the scandals that have engulfed Activision arrive and it starts, of course, with Xbox. Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's gaming division, thought about it, with statements that hinted at how the relationship between the two realities has profoundly changed following public complaints and not only received by the publisher and developer of Irvine.

Let's go in order: during the summer of 2021 many people hired in Activision actually denounced the reality in which they worked, guilty of having created a climate of brotherhood, with complaints for harassment sexual and more. The developers and developer were in fact placed in an unpleasant context, where older employees used to annoy all minorities, with comments that could be classified as a crime. And after the positions taken by all the major companies active in this industry, it seems that Xbox has already gone further.

Is (": visible ")) {console.log (" Edinet ADV adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_gamedivision_d_mh2_1 slot id: th_gamedivision_d_mh2 "); } “I cannot, for obvious reasons, disclose the details of the working relationship with a partner like Activision,” said Phil Spencer, obviously referring to nondisclosure agreements regarding contracts and collaborations currently in progress. The Head of Xbox, however, added that after the complaints their way of working with the reality of Irvine has changed and Activision itself is obviously aware of this. However, it would not be just a punishment: while not going into details, Spencer stated that he prefers to help companies rather than punish them.

How and how much the work that Xbox has to entertain has changed, for obvious commercial reasons, with the publisher of Call of Duty we cannot know. While admitting that they do not want to punish realities outside Microsoft, perhaps Phil Spencer and his colleagues have decided not to continue on some types of activities, or have preferred not to start new ones. When Spencer decides to leave his post, perhaps, he will be able to talk about it publicly: for now we can only make a few hypotheses.
