Activision Blizzard is reportedly preparing for another round of layoffs, this time within the Asia Pacific region.

The upcoming round of expected layoffs follows the closure of Activision Blizzard offices in France and the Netherlands earlier this year, according to an MCV report. The report states that around 30 staff are planned on being cut from the company.

“We’ve been exploring how we might best integrate our capabilities across the business and be efficient as we evolve to meet growth opportunities and stay competitive in Asia Pacific,” an Activision Blizzard spokesperson told MCV.

“To that end, we have begun conversations with employees regarding a plan to centralize some roles across the region in our Sydney office. Decisions of this nature are never easy and supporting our employees through this process is our number one priority.”

Of the 30 roles targeted for layoffs are the marketing, PR and publishing teams within Asia Pacific, while confirming that its “customer support and localisation teams are not affected”. Additionally, no further office closures have been announced.

“If You Don’t Know Me, You’ll Think I Am Arrogant” – Omotola Jalade (VIDEO)

Published

Nollywood actress and philanthropist, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has indicated that people judge her wrongly thinking she is an extremely arrogant person.

Omotola Ekeinde told Chude in an exclusive interview that although some think that about her, she does not have problems with that because she has to do it to protect herself especially with people she does not know.

According to the mother of four, when she is close to someone, she is unguarded, she talks and plays a lot and revealed that she is very careless around people she loves and insisted that the only time she can guard herself is when she does not know you.

About a month ago, Omotola in an interview with BBC Yoruba advised women not to marry a man who is not financially stable or financially fit to cater to their needs.

“One must apply wisdom or common sense in everything one does. People cannot say that because I married at 18, therefore they can also do it.

The question is, ‘are you ready for marriage’? When I was 18, I was ready. I had been working since I was 15-year-old and I had become a millionaire at the age of 18. That is a fact that a lot of people don’t know. I had my own money.

I was not dependent on any man. Moreover, my father died early, so I was already responsible for my younger siblings. I was like their mother at that time, so I was very mature and financially prepared. One should not marry a man when one is not financially stable. If one does that, one would be going into slavery or better still, prison.

If any of my children, after considering all these factors, say they are ready for marriage, we (parents) would meet the person and if we like them, we would give them our blessings.”

Two men and two teenagers were charged in relation to Pop Smoke’s death last July. LAPD detective Carlos Camacho reportedly testified at a preliminary hearing on Friday and claimed that one of the teens, who is 15, confessed to the murder to another inmate in his jail cell in May 2020.

‘He admitted that he shot the victim three times with a Beretta 9mm,’ detective Camacho reportedly told the court. ‘They got into a fight, and he shot him three times. He said he shot him on the back.’

The boy allegedly ‘admitted that they asked for the jewellery’ and had ‘a confrontation’ with Pop Smoke. Corey Walker, who is on trial for his alleged involvement in the incident, has pleaded not guilty but if convicted, he could face the death penalty the Los Angeles County district attorney said.

According to Walker’s account, Pop Smoke was allegedly pistol whipped before the teen shot him. On Thursday, Detective Christian Carrasco testified that a woman who was with Pop Smoke in the bedroom of the rented home, witnessed a group of men storm through curtains from a balcony.

One of the men allegedly held a gun to her head while shouting: ‘Shut the f**k up. Do you want to die?’

Carrasco said on the stand: ‘She heard a struggle coming from the shower area and heard Mr. Jackson [Pop Smoke] screaming. Mr. Jackson ran out of the bathroom and then she heard a loud pop and heard Mr. Jackson fall to the ground.’
