I’ll be interested to see if Activision actually does anything meaningful, because I guarantee that a public company that size first hired a crisis management firm. Then that firm recommended the law firm to do the investigation. That doesn’t always mean a whitewash or finding a couple of scapegoats to take the fall, but the crisis management playbook for publicly-traded companies tends to lean that way. They are far more worried about a shareholder suit and SEC problems if this non-disclosed information hurts the share price.
