IGN - Former Blizzard Developer and ArenaNet, Undead Labs Founder: "We Need
Unionization." "During my 25 years working alongside talented developers, I’ve heard
hundreds of profoundly disturbing stories about their industry experiences.
I’ve also seen this cycle repeat itself numerous times, across multiple
companies throughout our industry. There has certainly been some positive
change, and I do believe many developers and publishers — even large ones —
are working in good faith to improve. But those efforts, while commendable,
can’t address the chronic issues in our industry systemically. In order to
do that, game industry employees need advocacy and representation.
