The decision of Blizzard, in terms of timing, it is quite curious. As reported Kotakuthe latest patch of World of Warcraft comes just as the company has to deal with allegations of harassment and abuse for female employees and workers in general, even if it is not certain that there is a correlation between the two …
Is it really like this: l‘last update by World of Warcraft reduces the amount of breasts which can be seen in the game. And with breasts we are not referring to the well-known trigonometric function that populates the nightmares of high school students.
As noted by a user of WowHead, Archimtirosthe latest patch 9.1.5 for World of Warcraft update some in-game paintings of women to be less revealingwhile others have been removed entirely. For example, the image of a dressed woman in Stormwind has been altered to cover her breasts more, and a scantily clad woman in Ravenholdt has been supplanted by a cold but more demure bowl of fruit.
Kotaku points out that the timing of the patch notably coincides with the fact that Activision Blizzard is currently being sued by the state of California for gender discrimination and abuse against its employees, although there is not necessarily a definite correlation between the two. what’s this.
A move like that right now, however, is curious enough.
The lawsuits against Activision Blizzard
Activision Blizzard has ended up in the eye of the storm several times in recent weeks, with two major lawsuits in progress against the American company.
The first case details reports of sexual harassment, retaliation, gender pay inequality and racial discrimination at Activision Blizzard, and aims to make the company compliant with labor laws and address the wages lost by some employees due to gender discrimination. We have talked about it extensively here, but the issue, despite almost two months having passed, has not yet been resolved. The lawsuit also led to the farewell of some very important names within Blizzard, the area most affected by these allegations.
More recent is the accusation made by another group of employees, always against Activision Blizzard, who have increased the dose and accused the company of using intimidating methods to block and reject the complaints of its workers. The accusation, this time, is that of violating the rights of employees.
