A great saga needs all sorts of heroes and heroines
Making games is fun. Especially when you do it with people that share the same idea of what makes a good workplace great. That doesn't mean that we are all the same though. Activision Blizzard celebrates the diversity of our team and values the variety in gender, marital & civil partnership status, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnicity, personality traits, socioeconomic background, dependents, religion, age, or disability. We make great games because of the diversity of our people. In fact, we want to be even greater. And that's why we hire all kind of talent - because a great saga needs all sorts of heroes and heroines.
