PlayStation boss Jim Ryan calls out Bobby Kotick over Activision Blizzard scandal

In a letter reportedly sent to staff, Ryan noted that he has contacted Activision to express “deep concern” at the ongoing scandal that’s gripped Activision Blizzard over the past few months.

Per Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, Ryan was prompted to reach out to the company following a Wall Street Journal report that suggested the Activsion Blizzard CEO reportedly knew about allegations against the company for years and intentionally hid instances of sexual harrassment from the board.
