Blizzard has been dealing with a very big image crisis for quite some time. Therefore, no one should be surprised by the studio's numerous activities aimed at improving the situation. Another such initiative took place yesterday. The company's website published a message from the head of Blizzard himself, Mike Ybarra.
In essence, this is a kind of manifesto to assure players that the studio is heading in the right direction. It reads that the company is actively looking at community comments posted on forums and social media. Blizzard will be taking fans' advice to heart and working to further improve communication between the studio and players.
In addition, many changes will also take place in the structures of the company. An absolute priority will be to create a new work culture, which is to be friendly to all employees. Realization of this task will be assisted by people who will take completely new positions. The company will hire a Culture leader and a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion leader. The HR department will also undergo changes and will gain a new head responsible for organizing its further activities.
Ybarra also assured that some of the changes will have a positive impact on players. The studio's existing titles will receive new content much more often than before. In a week Blizzard will share with the world more information that are to be extremely attractive to fans.
