Blizzard President Resigns Amid Toxic Workplace Allegations

Share post:

J Allen Barrack will step down as President of Blizzard Entertainment and be replaced by Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra, who will jointly manage the company.

The news comes after California sued the company over allegedly toxic and sexist workplace culture.

The company denied all allegations and has called for legal action.

Last week, employees took to the streets to protest the company’s culture and the way it responded to the claims.

The company also said the new leaders will “ensure Blizzard is the safest, most welcoming workplace possible for women, and people of any gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or background.”
