Blizzard Promises They are Working on More Diversity in Games
Filed under: BLIZZARD

In response to an open letter that criticized both company president Mike Morhaime and Blizzard itself for the lack diverse representation in games, Morhaime assured fans that the studio is working toward diversifying their games and game characters.

"We're grateful to have such a diverse and passionate player base, and we want everyone to feel welcome, safe, and included in our games and communities," Morhaime said. "We have made some mistakes in how we've communicated about this and how we've reflected it in other ways, but we are working to improve.

"We take the topic of inclusiveness seriously, and we don't want any of our players to feel we are being insensitive in how we portray our characters," he added.

I was hoping this would be about actually improving Blizzard's storytelling, which has been thrown to rot in a ditch somewhere. Get that back to a level of 10+ years ago, then talk about diversity. I can't fathom why this angry letter writing person is mad about not being represented in something bland, boring and cliched as a Blizzard story.

Even if they do improve, but their vision and story is marred by their forceful p.c. as in "must equally represent everyone", their games could end up in the same place as Dragon Age.

This doesn't matter.

It's not news.

It's "awareness" mongering.
