Can't believe they kill off their own game just to appease the social justice crowd. I wonder if it was worth it.

This is literally the kind of behavior you see from religious believers. We're going to abandon or destroy something valuable, because we believe [blah blah blah].

And now those people are converting to SJWism, where this behavior is actively promoted and encouraged. SJWism is its own religion, and has been for a while now.

I can. Loads of companies have started doing it. I think part of it is the people working there are surrounded by this liberal bubble (they;re based in LA, and paid 120k+ starting salary), so they imagine everyone is as liberal as them. Then they have "diversity efforts" and start hiring people who care more about sending a message than about the company making money.

While some shareholders might care about them losing money, I wouldn't be surprised if even the board of directors has some people who blame the players for not liking them game because there are "too many white men in gaming" or something. Making money is no longer their goal; sending a message is.

true, but the shareholders can eventually sue. They'll learn the hard way.

Currently corporate law doesn't support the claim that the executive at a corporation can prioritize social justice above profits.

Yep, I was a diversity champion at Wells Fargo because I helped everyone and did an outstanding job. Meanwhile, Wells Fargo was creating fake accounts to use as collateral in a money making scheme. They were fined less than 1% of what they probably made. I do not works at Wells Fargo now, and I am ashamed at the decisions they made to play to PR instead of doing what is right.

They will lose huge amounts of money. But their (((superiors))) will reimburse them for killing yet another male-centered outlet.
