Patch 2.5.2 will be one of the first big updates to World of Warcraft content since the lawsuit alleging sexual harassment and discrimination at the hands of Activision Blizzard. This led to several high profile Blizzard employees to leave the company, including now-former President J. Allen Brack and Diablo 4 director Luis Barriga.
Additionally, California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing alleged Activision Blizzard interfered with the investigation by shredding documents. Acitivision Blizzard claims these allegations are not true.
