They talked about using COD model on other IPs but... What is the COD model anyway?
For those who don’t read official bullcrap :Hiring in Canada, Poland, China and Australia :China is cheap work/h so probably all test will go there.Poland is cheaper than us and western eu so it will reduce development costCanada has huge tax reduction on workforceAustralia has better short term contractSuch a nice view of a company that goes to hell
All traded companies do that. Fire people before annoucing results and then introduce aggressive hiring strategy. Pure greedy bull^&*!...
AVblizzard making record profit: "lets fire tons of ppl"AVblizzard making more money: "lets hire tons of ppl"I could only imagine how pissed i would be if i was fired by them and a yr later they are hiring....
I can't believe this numbers. I can see WoW losing players, my friends from different realms... I just started FF XIV to know it better, after play a lot of another FF before... and i know that i have not enought experience to say it, but looks like Square take care of game like Gollum take care of ring... and WoW... well...looks like Activision are Denatrius about anima.Sad to see that evade, just looks for realm pop site and see... I can't trust this number or the real essence of them.WoW now, looks like a board to announce annoying boost vendors... maybe that can be part of this growing numbers, since no one doing nothing about that.
Bobby isnt making enough green. Quickly, plan B! More devs, more devs! More devs! Get the train back on track!
Why try to do better as a company when you make the money?... It's sad
Correct me if I'm wrong, but haven't most of the people fired been part of customer support services and esports live events? I remember reading something about how Activision Blizzard doesn't rehire their staff once their contract expires, but I couldn't find anything online about developers getting fired on mass. Most of the ones that I know to have been layed off had been with them since the beginning or close-to.If they could at least hire some more game devs to get their release shedule down, I can get behind that.
So basically they just proved even more that instead of creating actual content they just focus on rebalancing stuff that doesn't need balancing, adding corrupted trash can looking things in Torghast, and releasing half assed expansion after half assed expansion. No wonder so many legends are leaving. There's probably more devs leaving too that we don't know about. And the systems are outdated and infuriating to deal with
So technically they could have given out 1 million bonuses for 200 game artists, instead of making 200 game artist jobless. Or hired people instead.
