I don’t understand video games or the economics around them. But goddam, the Activision Blizzard layoffs are brutal. If these giant companies can’t keep their employees when the economy is strong, and they’re making money hand over fist, it doesn’t bode well. In tech, I hope that they aren’t stupid enough to think that something something AI is going to replace employees.
Anyway, please wash your hands right now and get vaccinated or boosted if you’re eligible.
