U.S. government is taking its turn in thrashing Activision Blizzard's reputation, following valiant efforts in the same discipline by the company itself.

Activision Blizzard has been driving the latter half's reputation through the mud for a good long while now in a rather diligent fashion. From censorship, over half-baked products to providing the workplace filled with douchebags that can rival Commodus from the Gladiator, Blizzard has had a tough run in the last few years.

It is the last incident from the list that has earned them an investigation from the U.S. government now since the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is digging through the company's dirty laundry now . The organisation has subpoenaed Activision Blizzard's CEO, Bobby Kotick.

According to the reports, Kotick might also be suspected since the documents requested by the SEC involve personnel files of six previous employees as well as records of Kotick's communication with executives, in relation to the sexual harassment that previously saw the company get sued by the state of California.

Unfortunately, this may not end up being an effort to bring justice for the victims but rather a way for the shareholders to protect their investments and voice displeasure over the latest string of controversial ActiBlizz events.
