Blizzard France employees are going on strike against the planned Versailles office closure on Shadowlands launch date.
On October 6, we reported that Blizzard would be closing their French office in Versailles, which employs at least 280 people. The first strike as per the recommendation of their union happened on October 14.
A new call for strike against the planned Versailles office closure at Blizzard France is supposed to occur from November 24 onwards.
The union calls for an abandonment of the closure, diversification of the Blizzard activity in France, and investment in the care of psycho-social risks.
Blizzard released many interesting products over the past year, so here are some cool gamer gifts to inspire you for the upcoming holiday season.
