There is no doubt that 2021 was a terrible year for Activision Blizzard. In case you are not interested, in July a lawsuit came to light that accused the editor of sexual harassment, discrimination, racism and other toxic attitudes in the work environment. The controversy persists to this day and more and more companies are evaluating their relationships with the publisher responsible for franchises such as Overwatch, Diablo, World of Warcraft, and so on.
On this occasion, The LEGO Group, the popular toy and collecting company, spoke out on the situation and expressed concern about the progress Activision Blizzard is making in correcting its work culture. Likewise, he affirmed that the association with the video game publisher is already being evaluated.

“We are currently reviewing our partnership with Activision Blizzard, given concerns about the progress that is being made to address ongoing complaints about workplace culture, especially the treatment of female colleagues and the creation of a diverse and inclusive environment.” A spokesperson for The LEGO Group stated in a statement to Brick Fanatics.
The LEGO Group announced that, while evaluating its relationship with Activision Blizzard, it decided to indefinitely delay the launch of the Overwatch 2 Titan set, which was to debut on February 1. Of course, it remains to be seen if the resolution of the analysis does not end in the definitive cancellation of the set inspired by the sequel to the hero shooter.
It is worth noting that, since the controversy began in 2021, multiple organizations expressed concern about the situation. Along these lines, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, lashed out at Activision Blizzard and recently claimed that the relationship between Xbox and Activision changed.
