Alex Afrasiabi - Where'd he go? :o

Just noticed it says he left blizzard in June 2020. Usually we see a big notice about these things when oldies abandon ship / seek new horisons, but this seems to have gone totally silent?

Any special reason?
I wish him good luck in the future anyway, and thanks for the work he did.

Yeah but my question is more aimed at why it went silent, unlike others.

I guess we know now.

“An employee brought these 2013 events to our attention in June 2020,” a spokesperson for Activision Blizzard told Kotaku when asked about the “Cosby Suite” images and allegations against Afrasiabi. “We immediately conducted our own investigation and took corrective action. At the time of the report, we had already conducted a separate investigation of Alex Afrasiabi and terminated him for his misconduct in his treatment of other employees.

Well, you see, he was harassing and manipulating women and Blizzard found out and made him quietly resign, so the news wouldn’t hit the front pages. I wonder how’s that working out for them now?
