But won't somebody think of the poor multi-billion-dollar companies, the ultra rich CEOs, and how expensive games are to make?

Activision/Blizzard does this so often when they hit record profits, I at first thought this was an old video or that Yong reuploaded an old video by mistake.

Menawhile, in a mirror dimension:
Activision: We are announcing we're in huge debt and are approaching bankrupcy, which is why we decided to hire 200 more people.

When I worked for a major hotel chain they slowly cut back on benefits and increased insurance costs while telling us every quarter how much more money the company made…and how we should be grateful for that. 😑 I feel bad for the employees and hope they can get on their feet quickly. It’s a shitty thing to do during a pandemic.

This is how most of the AAA companies work. Instead of giving out bonuses. They get rid of them and tell them we will call if we need you again. The bosses split the money.

If smoothbrain casuals and children quit buying CoD, Activision would either be forced to change or go out of business.

And yet the game industry (mostly the giant corporations like activision, EA, 2k etc) says that the price for games needs to be increased because "games are more expensive to be made", even tho these same corporations gets record revenue every year and fires employees like its nothing

Humm, I hate to be that guy but companies don't fire people just because they don't have money to pay them, if say you stop providing a service for example and have nowhere else to add these people, than most likely they are going to be fired. This is not me saying that they are 100% on the right, they should have informed the decision but this forced correlation between having money and not firing people just does not exist.

We always get mad about this, but when is shit gonna actually fucking change?!? No matter, I'll keep voting with my wallet elsewhere. I hope there's some new devil-Bobby Kotick memes floating around after this, let's get Tony Pettiti in there too.. Greedy fucks deserve all the shit that comes their way.

That $200 Gift Card was the most insulting thing to get from a company that fired me to want me as a customer still. XD

These companies don't care about anyone, not even in a pandemic where most people are dealing with their financial situations. Stop buying their games, their micro-transactions, let them bite the dust.

As much as i hate Activision/Blizzard and their CEOs i have to disagree with the sentiment of this video. If a company does not need your position, and you are unable to do something else, then what is the company supposed to do with you? Yes, they will hire 3000+ people this year…but for different positions. Hate to be devil's advocate, but this is my opinion.

Normally I'd be all for trashing Activision… but it sounds like the live event business just isn't there. Plus 90 day severance and a year of medical coverage is STUPID generous. Sorry, Yong. This feels like a stretch
