More than 20 Activision Blizzard employees have been fired from the company since the ongoing sexual harassment lawsuit was first filed, per a report in the Financial Times [Paywall] and a note from Activision Blizzard chief compliance officer, Frances Townsend, on the company’s corporate website.

“It doesn’t matter what your rank is, what your job is,” said Townsend in an interview with the FT. “If you’ve committed some sort of misconduct or you’re a leader who has tolerated a culture that is not consistent with our values, we’re going to take action.”
