“We are currently reviewing our partnership with Activision Blizzard in the light of concerns about the progress being made in addressing continuing allegations of workplace culture, in particular the treatment of female colleagues and the creation of a diverse and inclusive environment,” said LEGO in a statement. “While we complete the review, we will pause the release of a LEGO Overwatch 2 product, which should go on sale on February 1, 2022.”

Most recently in the Activision Blizzard saga, an ABK Workers Alliance Strike Fund has just raised over $ 350,000. Employees across the company are currently on strike in solidarity with members of the Raven QA, whose contracts were terminated late last year.
