So I think I have a valid perspective here, having been a Team Lead at Blizzard and having grown up in Asia.
This cash was and is used to do expand and buy up stakes in US gaming companies.
Unfortunately, money talks. China has succeeded in infiltrating all levels of tech, gaming and more.
So again, China influence grew. I’m sure this is the same for movies as well.
Now, game companies are silencing voices for freedom and democracy.
China is dictating that the world be authoritarian.
Blizzard was always about “gamer first” and “don’t be greedy.”
At least, it was when I was there.
It’s time for Blizzard to grow the spine it used to have, and to do what’s right for gamers once again.
Gamers, rise up.
This might mean we never make a dime, but more is at stake now than just games. A line has to be drawn, and I’m drawing it now.
