Activision Blizzard is a video game holding company based in Santa Monica, California. The Company was formed by a merger between Activision, Inc. and Vivendi Games. The Company is a developer and publisher of interactive entertainment content and services. It develops and distributes content and services across various gaming platforms.

A class action Lawsuit has been filed for all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of Activision Blizzard, Inc., between August 4, 2016 and July 27, 2021. The complaint alleges (1) Activision Blizzard discriminated against women and minority employees; (2) Activision Blizzard fostered a pervasive "frat boy" workplace culture that continues to thrive; (3) numerous complaints about unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation were made to human resources personnel and executives which went unaddressed; (4) the pervasive culture of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation would result in serious impairments to Activision Blizzard's operations; (5) as a result of the foregoing, the Company was at greater risk of regulatory and legal scrutiny and enforcement, including that which would have a material adverse effect; (6) Activision Blizzard failed to inform shareholders that the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing had been investigating Activision Blizzard for harassment and discrimination; and (7) as a result, Defendants' statements about Activision Blizzard's business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
