Phil Spencer Says Xbox Is Re-Evaluating It’s Relationship with Activision Blizzard

Xbox head Phil Spencer report­ed­ly said in an email to staff that the com­pa­ny is “eval­u­at­ing” their rela­tion­ship with Activi­sion Bliz­zard after a report that CEO Bob­by Kotick cov­ered up sex­u­al abuse was released.

The email in ques­tion was obtained by Bloomberg, in which Spencer said Xbox is “eval­u­at­ing all aspects of our rela­tion­ship with Activi­sion Bliz­zard and mak­ing ongo­ing proac­tive adjustments.”

Spencer and oth­er mem­bers of the senior man­age­ment are “dis­turbed and deeply trou­bled by the hor­rif­ic events and actions” at Activi­sion Bliz­zard, accord­ing to Bloomberg.

Spencer’s com­ments sur­faced after it was report­ed that PlaySta­tion boss Jim Ryan reached out to Activi­sion Bliz­zard to express his con­cerns and ask what the com­pa­ny was doing to fix the issue.

Respond­ing to what Ryan and Spencer have report­ed­ly said about sit­u­a­tion at Activi­sion Bliz­zard, a spokesper­son for the com­pa­ny told Bloomberg, “We respect all feed­back from our val­ued part­ners,” adding that “we are com­mit­ted to the work of ensur­ing our cul­ture and work­place are safe, diverse, and inclusive.”
