The scandal for systematic disadvantage and sexism seems to stop Activision Blizzard now expensive to stand. In a few weeks, a reboot of the Owatch League is scheduled in May. But these are currently missing all sponsors.
The previous supporters like Kellogg, State Farm and Coca Cola have announced all contracts due to sexism allegations. New financiers are correspondingly careful and restrained. Even the telecommunications provider Comcast, at the same time the owner of the Overwatch team Philadelphia Fusion, had already briefed that there is no interest in sponsoring the league.
The last event in North America is already a good two years because of the Covid pandemic. All the more important would be a great and successful event for Activision Blizzard and all associated persons. Surely you wanted to use the opportunity to promote the beta started in April from Overwatch 2.
Addressed to the complete lack of sponsors, the new head of Overwatch League Sean Miller expressed: "We have been working on the plans for the league for months and will intensify them. We are in conversations with both the old, as well as potential new funds. "
Should resistant and well-known sponsors continue to stay, the next million grave for the American gamesmiths could be threatened here. It is likely to become more unsolvable task with any new scandals become known.
At the beginning of the month, for example, a new case was known in which the parents of a woman filed suit. According to the parents, their daughter committed suicide as a result of sexual harassment and their associated departure from the company.
