One less partner to support Activision Blizzard and its CEO Bobby Kotick. After Xbox and PlayStation, it is now Nintendo which is dissociating itself from the boss of the video game studio, whose name is mentioned in cases of harassment and toxic corporate culture.
The head of Nintendo of America, Doug bowser, reportedly sent an email to all members of his group recently to express his dissatisfaction with the situation.
Like all of you, I have been following the latest developments regarding Activision Blizzard and the ongoing reports of sexual harassment and toxicity within the company. I find these testimonies distressing and disturbing. They go against my values and against Nintendo’s beliefs, values and policies.
Every business in the sector must create an environment where everyone is respected and treated equally, and where everyone understands the consequences of breaking this rule.
