Innan Diablo IV och Overwatch 2 visades upp under kvällens Blizzcon-mässa så äntrade Blizzards överhuvud J. Allen Brack scenen för att leverera en ursäkt till fansen gällande den uppmärksammande Blitzchung-incidenten som ägde rum under förra månaden. Brack gav visserligen inga besked om studion skulle ändra något i straffet som man har delat ut till berörda spelare och programledare, men man betonande däremot att man hade agerat för snabbt, och då även utan att leva upp till företagets egna standard. Ni kan läsa hela uttalandet här nedan (Tack Gameinformer) och vill ni heller se och höra ursäkten kan ni göra det här (Tack Kotaku).

"Blizzard had the opportunity to bring the world together in a tough Hearthstone esports moment about a month ago, and we did not. We moved too quickly in our decision making, and then, to make matters worse, we were too slow to talk with all of you. When I think about what I'm most unhappy about, it's really two things: The first is we didn't live up to the high standards that we really set for ourselves, and the second is we failed in our purpose, and for that, I am sorry, and I accept accountability.

So what exactly is our purpose? BlizzCon is demonstrating it even as we speak: We aspire to bring the world together in epic entertainment, and I truly believe in the positive power of video games. When we get it right, we create a common ground where the community comes together to compete, connect, and play irrespective of the things that divide us. As an example, BlizzCon has people from 59 countries all around the show here at the show today. That is amazing! And that is the positive power of video games: to transcend divisions that surround us in so many of our places today.

We will do better going forward, but our actions are going to matter more than any of these words. As you walk around this weekend, I hope it's clear how committed we are to everyone's right to express themselves in all kinds of ways, in all kinds of places. I've actually seen and heard many of you expressing yourself this morning! You use your vacation and your family time to be here in Anaheim with us, and we are so grateful that you're here this weekend."

Tycker ni ursäkten var bra, eller var det mest tomma ord?
