I’m a gamer, always have been.

Blizzard apologizes for how the Hong Kong issue was handled

During this BlizzCon, Blizzard will be remembered for Diablo IV, Overwatch 2, and perhaps the new expansion for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. What may not appear in many media is how Jay Allen BrackPresident of the company, has apologized about how the whole Hong Kong issue was handled.

Jay Allen began by saying that “Blizzard had the opportunity to get the whole world together in an HS esports tournament a month ago and they didn’t. Decisions were made very lightly and that made the problems worse as our communication was slow. If I have to say that two things have bothered me the most, they are the following. The first is that we have not met our standards, and the second is that we have failed our mission. And for that, I’m sorry and accept my share of the blame.”

In an intervention in which the president of this company was quite affected, so much so that it seemed that a tear was going to fall at any moment, Allen made it clear that Blizzard’s goal is to bring people together. from all over the world, whatever their background, and unite them in their games; despite all the things that divide us.

The apologies seemed sincere to us. Already in our live we commented that he looked quite affected and it is not for less. Blizzard’s handling of the issue of Hong Kong and Hearthstone has given a lot to talk about and has been criticized all over the world.
