Activision Blizzard prepares to make more layoffs

American publishing giant Activision Blizzard plans to cut more jobs around the world.

That’s according to MCV, which reports that more than 100 staff members in the company’s Asia Pacific offices face layoffs. The departments that will be affected include marketing, public relations, publishing and localization.

“We have been exploring how we can better integrate our capabilities into the business and be efficient as we evolve to find growth opportunities and remain competitive in Asia Pacific,” said an Activision Blizzard spokesperson.

“To that end, we have started discussions with employees about a plan to centralize some roles in the region at our Sydney office. Decisions of this nature are never easy and supporting our employees through this process is our number one priority. “

This news comes shortly after Activision Blizzard closed its offices in Versailles and The Hague. In early 2019, the company announced that it was laying off eight percent of its global workforce, in the region of 800 people.

PCGamesInsider.biz reported where some of these cuts had been made, as well as which departments of the company’s business in the United States had been affected by the layoff of 209 staff members.

And then last month, Activision Blizzard boss Robert Kotick (pictured) revealed that the company was looking to fill more than 2,000 positions.
