LEGO has postponed the original release date of its Overwatch 2 Titan set citing Activision Blizzard allegations.
LEGO Overwatch 2 Titan is slated to release on February 1. It made its debut back in December. Titan is the first of the series to launch in 2022. Regrettably, LEGO will be delaying Titan amid the ongoing situation at Activision Blizzard.
LEGO To Delay Overwatch 2 Titan
In a new statement (via TheBrickFan), the game developer said, “We are currently reviewing our partnership with Activision Blizzard, given concerns about the progress being made to address continuing allegations regarding workplace culture, especially the treatment of female colleagues and creating a diverse and inclusive environment.”
“While we complete the review, we will pause the release of a LEGO Overwatch 2 product which was due to go on sale on February 1, 2022.
To recall, things haven’t been pleasant lately at ActiBlizz. In July, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing brought a lawsuit in July against the company. The lawsuit accused the company of discrimination and sexual harassment.
Six US state treasurers have urged the company to respond to the sexual harassment scandal in a meeting with the board members. In the meantime, the company is leaving no stone unturned in a bid to get on the right track.
As part of its attempt to amend its rundown reputation, the company has also fired some key figures. However, the company’s attempt to discourage potential unionization raises questions over its efforts to improve its workplace practices.
