Activision Allowed Abuse to Run Rampant
Activision has revealed some new information about the campaign of Call of Duty: Vanguard. It’s World War II. What do you think you do? That’s probably right. You kill nazis.
In Vanguard, your squadmates are five soldiers whose individual actions helped turn the tide of World War II across four major fronts: Private Lucas Riggs in the North Africa Campaign, Lieutenant Wade Jackson from the Pacific, Lieutenant Polina Petrova, who defended her home country on the Eastern Front, Sergeant Richard Webb and your leader: Sergeant Arthur Kingsley of the British Army’s 9th Parachute Battalion. Through Vanguard’s Campaign, you will live out the moments that made them heroes and learn how they came together to spearhead Task Force One. You will also get to know the concept of international “Special Forces” and, ultimately, what brings them face-to-face with the man who is spearheading Project Phoenix: the ruthless Nazi Officer Hermann Wenzel Freisinger.
Here are the list of actors taking part in Call of Duty: Vangaurd:
- Sergeant Arthur Kingsley – Chiké Okonkwo
- Lieutenant Polina Petrova – Laura Bailey
- Private Lucas Riggs – Martin Copping
- Lieutenant 1st Class Wade Jackson – Derek Phillips
- Sergeant Richard Webb – Simon Quarterman
- SS Oberst-Gruppenführer Hermann Wenzel Friesinger – Dan Donohue
- Jannick Richter – Dominic Monaghan
That’s all well and good, but let’s not forget that Activision has been sued for workplace discrimination, and Bobby Kotick needs to be fired. His company created a frat boy culture that led to the sexual harassment of women in the company. Let’s not forget the woman who killed herself over such harassment as nude photos of her were shared around. Bobby Kotick ran the company and absolutely knew about the culture and is garbage, or didn’t know and is completely incompetent. Take your pick. His company also tried to shred evidence about the abuse. Something good companies regularly do, of course.
I won’t forget this abuse. I certainly won’t be playing any of their games as long as Bobby Kotick is still around.
