Ignore Umatbro, he is an obvious troll who came here to argue in bad faith.
If this is the new Houseman, I'm just gonna save myself a lot of trouble and annoyance and put him on the ignore list right now.

2021 claims another victim
That's not even that shocking for me. Most of these games have been delayed the 2022, so I suggest everybody pucker up and just start playing games they haven't tried or they already enjoy.

I mean it's not dead....it's just delayed. Which happened all the time even without a global plague. I have 200+ games in my steam library, and HZD on PS4. I'll be ok until ginger haired techno-ranger messiah returns to save the day again.

Schreier also has an interesting timeline in that same twitter thread, in which Vivendi bought out Blizzard to form Activision Blizzard. Then Bobby Kotick bought Vivendi and became king of everything. Then Bobby starts pushing demands on Blizzard to cut costs and actually make more games (something Blizzard still has never done). Bobby tend starts putting his own people into Blizzard's leadership pushing Mike Morhaime and most of the old guard of Blizzard out the door. Brack takes over as Blizz Pres, but immediately the company starts the bad press train with Blitzchung, Diablo immortal (still not out), and W3 Reforged. Now these alligations come out.

It's clear that Blizzard has been too busy molesting and harassing people, than actually doing any real work and make any games.

AS much as people want to talk about Blizzard's downfall because of Activision, it was only a matter of time before these allegations came out and tanked the company anyway. These harassment allegations go back to even before Activision so it isn't Kotick's fault this shit started. While Blizzard may not have been so eager to make a cash shop with Activision's influence to make more money, it is pretty clear that the whole culture of the studio was set to collapse on itself as the poison of success rotted them from the inside.

Hopefully with the new leadership the company emulates EA in the do and don'ts how to finally cast aside the shitheads to make more wholesome and diverse games

And no, Gacha mechanics aren't a bad thing
