A portion of the email is structured as a Q&A addressing questions from employees. In it Price explains his rationale for the social media silence. He begins by noting the studio sent a "near-60 page" document to PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst filled with messages from employees urging leadership — Ryan, in particular — to "do better by employees who are directly affected." For the time being, however, Insomniac is not allowed to make a statement about reproductive rights or its donation — nor does Price think it would be a good idea for the studio to go over Sony's head and try.
"There would be material repercussions for us as a wholly owned subsidiary," Price wrote in response to a question about what would happen if Insomniac tweeted about the donation. "Among other things, any progress that we might make in helping change [Sony Interactive Entertainment's] approach would be stopped dead in its tracks. We'd also probably be severely restricted from doing important public-facing work in the future."
After Jimbo told all his employees about his cats and dogs, Insomniac apologies and donates money.
