The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has commented on the ongoing harassment situation at Activision Blizzard. Following the allegations made against CEO Bobby Kotick, the ESA addressed the sort of allegations that have been repeatedly coming out aginst the Call of Duty publisher.

In its statement, the ESA does not directly refer to Activision Blizzard, though the trade body does describe the sort of actions and allegations that emerged against Activision Blizzard. "Harassment, abuse, or mistreatment of any kind in the workplace is unacceptable and must never be tolerated," the ESA said. "When allegations arise, people impacted need to have their voices heard. Any allegation needs to be acknowledged, thoroughly investigated, and addressed with meaningful consequences."
