Sony Group Corporation’s PlayStation Chief Jim Ryan criticized Activision Blizzard Inc. on Wednesday.
In an email to employees reviewed by Bloomberg, Ryan linked to the Wall Street Journal’s Tuesday report. He and his leadership wrote that Activision “has not done enough to deal with the deep-seated culture of discrimination and harassment” and “disappointed and frankly read and stunned.”
“I contacted Activision shortly after the article was published, expressed deep concern and asked how they would address the claims made in the article,” he wrote. “We do not believe that their response statement addresses the situation appropriately.”
As one of the largest console makers in the video game industry, PlayStation has long had a close relationship with Activision, which produces hits such as Call of Duty and World of Warcraft.
Employees of Activision Blizzard went out on Tuesday and asked for Kotick’s resignation. The board issued a statement in support of Cotic.
