Blizzard President Out After Employee Walkout

The president of Irvine-based Blizzard Entertainment, J. Allen Brack, is out, and will be replaced by two executives, who will co-lead the company, following an employee walkout over the company's handling of sexual harassment issues. According to Blizzard, Brack is stepping down and will be replaced by co-leaders Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra. Oneal has been at Blizzard since January, serving as Executive Vice President of Development, and was previously head of Vicarious Visions; Ybarra has been at Blizzard since 2019, serving as Executive Vice President and General Manager of Platform and Technology. Blizzard was just sued by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing over what the lawsuit describes as "constant sexual harassment" at the company.
