Blizzard Entertainment’s been seeing a lot of upheaval in recent weeks and months, which, of course, is primarily because of the ongoing lawsuit against the company based on allegations of harassment and discrimination against employees, and the fallout of that has resulted in turnover of various leads at the company, for some reason or the other.

As Bloomberg reports, Chacko Sonny – executive producer on Overwatch and its upcoming sequel – is leaving the company as well, though there’s little to no indication that his departure is related to the controversies surrounding Blizzard right now. According to Bloomberg, Blizzard employees choosing to remain anonymous have stated that Sonny was a well-respected figure in the company and there wasn’t any knowledge of allegations made against him.

Alongside Overwatch 2, fellow upcoming Blizzard title Diablo 4 has also seen some turnover with several creative leads having been let go from the company. Earlier, Blizzard president J. Allen Brack also stepped down from his role and left the company. Recently, Activision Blizzard also hired new people for the Chief People Officer and Chief Creative Officer positions, and Chief Legal Officer Charlie Hart recently resigned.

Alongside the lawsuit against the company, Activision Blizzard is also being investigated by the SEC.
