Some Blizzard Employees Walkout Over Hong Kong Controversy

The Daily Beast reports that some Blizzard employees staged a walkout today to protest the company's handling of a pro-Hong Kong protest at a recent Hearthstone tournament. Here's word: "The demonstrationís numbers fluctuated throughout the day, the two employees said, ranging from a dozen to 30, and the protesters departed sometime in the late afternoon. The protesters would have been visible to executive offices, which overlook the main plaza, the two employees said. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment." On a related note, Tim Sweeney reiterated on Twitter that "Epic supports the rights of Fortnite players and creators to speak about politics and human rights." He indicates this will remain the case, even if someone drops a dime on them to Tencent, the Chinese firm that owns 40% of Epic Games (not to mention around 5% of Activision Blizzard).
