Blizzard Entertainment’s chief legal officer left the company on Friday. Claire Hart held this role for three years, but announced her resignation on LinkedIn today.
“After more than three years at Blizzard Entertainment, I’ve decided to start my next adventure. Friday was my last day, ”wrote Hart. “The past three years have been filled with unexpected twists and turns, but I am honored to have worked and met with so many great people at Blizzard and the Activision Blizzard companies.
“I’ll take a short break before I make my next move. Stay tuned!”
While Hart’s departure comes amid a high-profile harassment lawsuit at Activision Blizzard, Hart doesn’t mention it in relation to her resignation. We asked Hart for a comment and will update it when we hear something.
The harassment lawsuit recently prompted the SEC to investigate Activision Blizzard’s handling of employee sexual misconduct and discrimination complaints, with several company executives – including CEO Bobby Kotick – subject to subpoenas.
