    Sexual harrassment is securities fraud?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Take them down. Scum company to it's employees, its fans and customers, and it's IPs. Burn.

    My only problem is that their IPs will die with them. Otherwise let them burn.

    I would guess its top ranks hiding the garbage fire while doing PR to raise the stock prices and accidently timing their own personal stock sales, over which they have zero control obviously, to happen by pure coincidence after major releases further inflate the stock prices.

    Didn't they already get done by the shareholders for hiding an epidemic of sexual harassment because (as ever) it hurt the value?

    Don't worry, those are too valuable to be stowed away in a dusty closet. Someone will shell out the money needed to acquire the cash cows WoW and Starcraft (are there other notable IPs?).

    Hearthstone is a massive cashcow, Diablo can be aswell, and Overwatch is pretty big but not paid that enough attention to know if it is a real cash cow aswell

    Yep, all five are quite big albeit WoW is declining. Also Warcraft (the RTS).

    Right, forgot about those.

    I should have remembered Diabolo, but both Hearthstone and Overwatch are genres that are not my cup of coffee. If you wuld have asked me from whom those are, I might have remembered Hearthstone being a Blizzard title. But Overwatch ... vOv

    It was fairly impressive how quickly overwatch fizzled out from having a lot of buzz around the esports aspect, lots of streamer on board lots of hyped updates and then everyone seemed to get bored of it.

    I'm shocked how hard the hammer has come down on Blizzard. They must've been truly scum.

    And with the release of D2 remastered, we see just how much that "hammer" is worth.

    The Blizzard IP will survive in a zombie-like state for a long while to come.

    Don't forget Heroes of the Storm, which uses Warcraft and Starcraft and Overwatch and even The Vikings IP. Basically if Blizzard ever made it it's in HotS. It was also a massive cashcow for Blizzard but it's been dying at an accelerating pace this whole year if the people I know who still play it are to be believed, it's apparently hit new lows the past month or so.

    Eh, hots was afaik always a very minor success and cash cow for Blizzard. They dropped working on it as a "serious" IP like two years ago.

    Which really shows how retarded Blizzard really is. HotS was really great and had so many strong IPs at its back and still Blizzard managed to ruin it. Even so, it went on for two years before it went into its death throes.

    Same thing always happens when you let the money men run your business.
