  • Bobby Kotick to Consider Leaving If He Cannot Fix Problems at Activision Blizzard

    Retire, Bobby.

    During a meeting with other senior managers and executives at Activision Blizzard, CEO Bobby Kotick said that he would consider leaving the company if he is unable to fix the issues that he helped to create. Kotick did seem to stop just short of saying that he would step down in the meeting that took place this past Friday. He merely left the door cracked open a bit if the issues weren't fixed "with speed."

    This report comes from The Wall Street...

    Call of Duty Bans May Persist Across Across Titles

    Maybe just don't cheat in the first place.

    Activision has recently updated their security enforcement policy to say that any "extreme or repeated violations" may result in a permanent suspension from every Call of Duty title. Oh yes, this most certainly includes those Call of Duty titles that aren't even out yet but we all know are coming because Call of Duty is inevitable.

    This new policy was revealed by way of a recent Ricochet status update. For those unaware,...

    Call of Duty: Vanguard Needs 61GB of Space for the Full Experience

    You'll be able to save even more space if you don't care about the campaign.

    Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released on November 5, 2021, which is just four short days away now. We knew that the install size for Vanguard would be "up to 50% smaller" than prior releases, but it wasn't until today that we get a much clearer picture as to what that actually means.

    Activision pushed out a new blog post that details the PC system requirements for Call of Duty: Vanguard....

    Activision Blizzard Boss Bobby Kotick Requests Massive Pay Cut

    At least until the company improves.

    Activision Blizzard head honcho, boss, and CEO Bobby Kotick has requested that his salary be significantly cut until such a time as the company makes significant enough changes to work culture. This comes at a time where the company is dealing with a lawsuit from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

    Perhaps you've heard of that?

    In a letter that was addressed to Activision Blizzard staff, and subsequently...

  • Call of Duty: Vanguard Install Size to be Up to 50% Smaller than Previous Releases

    Well, at least at launch.

    If you have installed and played a Call of Duty title released in the past few years, you probably noticed that your PC or console has suddenly run out of room for, well, most anything else. That's because the install sizes for the past few Call of Duty titles have been absolutely massive.

    Let's not forget that there was a time where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was no longer able to fit on a 250GB drive. Thankfully, that install size has come...

  • As Expected, Activision Blizzard is Looking to Weasel Way Out of California Lawsuit

    The game studio has requested additional time in order to investigate potential ethics violations.

    Activision Blizzard has just requested for additional time in their legal battle against the California Department of Fair and Equal Housing. The studio says that they need time in order to investigate and possibly disqualify the lawsuit that was brought on by the DFEH back in July 2021. This request stems from a potential ethics violation that sprung up from its other legal battle that...

  • Call of Duty's New Anti-cheat has Apparently Leaked Online Just One Day After Being Announced

    It's already being reverse engineered by cheat makers.

    Over the span of just three days, we had Activision issuing a threat against cheaters, the reveal of Ricochet, the new kernel-level anti-cheat coming to Call of Duty, and now today that anti-cheat has apparently already been leaked. Not only that, but Ricochet is apparently already being reverse engineered by "pay to cheat" (P2C) developers.

    Ricochet as it is known was announced just yesterday for Call of...

  • Call of Duty's New Anti-Cheat, Ricochet, to Use Kernel-Level Driver

    Call of Duty's New Anti-Cheat, Ricochet, to Use Kernel-Level Driver

    This is about as invasive an anti-cheat as you can get.

    On October 12, the Call of Duty devs issued a vague, ominous, and really cringey warning to cheaters. As it stands, the new anti-cheat for Call of Duty: Warzone wasn't slated to be released until Call of Duty: Vanguard released later this year. So, what then were they teasing to be revealed today?

    Well, it was the reveal announcement for their new anti-cheat. They call it Ricochet, which is not to be confused with...

    Call of Duty Cheaters Issued Ominous Threat from Activision

    I guess Activision is... rising up?

    Look cheaters, you best not mess with Call of Duty devs because they're one step away from leveling up and you look like just enough XP. If that made you cringe, you're in the right place to see even more cringe.

    The Call of Duty twitter account issued a weird, kind of ominous, kind of cringe-filled threat to cheaters today. In their all caps message, the account said that "CHEATERS AREN'T WELCOME" and that "SOON YOU'LL...

    Activision Blizzard Lawsuits Hit a Major Snag

    There may be a conflict of interests that are muddying the waters.

    Stick with me on this, because this is probably going to be a little confusing. At the end of September 2021, Activision Blizzard settled a lawsuit brought on by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for the lowly amount of $18 million (USD). This lawsuit would be used to "compensate and make amends" for employees impacted by the rampant sexual discrimination and harassment that has been...

    Activision Blizzard Settles Equal Employment Lawsuit for Just $18 Million

    Stop me if you've heard this one before.

    Original: The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is now suing Activision Blizzard over its alleged rampant sexual harassment and discrimination. The lawsuit was filed today, Monday September 27, 2021 in a California court. This lawsuit is based off of a three-year long investigation by the EEOC into the workplace conditions that have now become very well known amongst the general public.

    The investigation is said...
