A number of key investors had called for Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick to resign from the board in the wake of the myriad of ongoing investigations and personal allegations against his person.

But like a cat with nine lives, WCCFTech can now report that investors have voted to give Bobby Kotick another year on Activision Blizzard's board. This took place at the annual investor meeting.

However, it should be noted that the company also adopted the infamous New York Report, an initiative to ensure that the company will be more transparent about what it handles in the future:


  • Total number of disputes settled by the company, and the amount of money spent doing so
  • Progress towards reducing the average amount of time taken to resolve such complaints, either internally or through litigation
  • Total number of pending complaints regarding sexual abuse, harassment or discrimination
  • Amount of hours worked and pay issued, as required by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH)

This comes after Activision Blizzard's own internal investigation "cleared" them of all allegations, but it seems that the owners didn't really believe their own version.
