The head of Blizzard Jay Allen Brack leaves Activision Blizzard, as the representatives of the corporation have already told the employees. The firm will now be headed by Jen Oneil (former head of Vicarious Visions) and Mike Ibarra (former Xbox vice president).
Brack leaves against the backdrop of a loud scandal within the company about discrimination against girls – according to employees, this lasted more than 10 years and arose under the first president, Michael Morheim.
It is noteworthy that Jen Onil headed Vicarious Visions last year (remakes of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 and Diablo II: Resurrected), but the studio became part of Blizzard and the girl was appointed vice president of production for the company.
Jay Allen BrBrack himself said that he believes in the leadership skills of new leaders – “they can achieve the full potential of Blizzard.”
