Blizzard Dev left a decade of great subs before being laid off

last week, Microsoft laid off 1,900 video game workers Through its various studios. This included cuts at recently acquired Activision Blizzard. One employee, before being laid off, used Blizzard's perk to get nearly 10 years of work. World of Warcraft Subscription codes.

The terrible video game industry of 2023, which witnessed Thousands of people were laid off Through many companies, It continued until 2024. As of January 29, according to KotakuOn the layoff tracker, nearly 6,000 layoffs have been made at places like Unity, Riot, Bethesda, Twitch, Discord, and Activision Blizzard. A developer at Blizzard realized what was happening and took advantage of the company's privileges before losing access.

I reached out to Holisky and he explained that Keyring is an internal system at Blizzard where employees can access digital game codes that they “obtained for whatever reason.”

He explained that he stored these codes for one year while working at Blizzard for nearly five years. Another employee who was laid off from the company tried a similar tactic, but it appears that many other employees were trying to get their codes before they were laid off. They all crashed on the Keyring service.

That's how Holeski was Indiana Jones He slides under the door and grabs his hat in last Second, except the stone door is a terrible layoff that put 1,900 people out of work and the hat is a key symbol necklace.
