He just resigned from his position as CEO and President of Publishing, he's still with the company probably getting paid shit loads and all kinds of allowances.

Suits are overpaid agree with that 100%
If they actually did something and not fuck people over it would be worth the extra $ they get paid, but in the gaming industry they have to look at every developer, programmer and artist as more than a number because their experience and willingness to work will make or break a company not like P&G where R&D designs something or they buy an idea and the process workers take over, you can get anyone to work in a factory but not as a game dev of any kind.

Most of them bring their experiences in management from other industries which can mean didly squat if they cannot "think outside the box" and adapt. I'm pretty sure Blizzard doesn't think of anyone working for them as a number.
