Tim Schafer said some unpleasant things about Bobby Kotick.
Activision has now responded, insisting that Bobby Kotick really isn’t a soulless, game-hating, money-obsessed overlord. Really!
â€œTim Schafer’s comment that Bobby Kotick â€˜makes a big deal about not liking games’ just isn’t true. Bobby has always been passionate about games, and loves the video game industry,â€ Activision-Blizzard senior VP of corporate communications Maryanne Lataif indicated to IndustryGamers.
â€œBut as CEO of a company that makes games enjoyed by millions of people worldwide, the demands on his time now make it difficult to play games as often as he’d like to or as much as he once did.â€
â€œAs Schafer himself notes,â€ she added â€œhe has never actually met Bobby Kotick.â€
Activision have fervently denied that Bobby Kotick hates games. Of course he loves games. They make him millions of dollars every year!
Strange that they haven’t denied that he’s a dick though.
